Strawberries are very delicate so are being sprayed with pesticides to prevent them being destroyed by pests. Choose organic if possible. If non-organic, you can soak them in clean water and a cupful of apple cider vinegar and a pinch of sea salt for 10 minutes; then rinse to remove the pesticide residues where possible. Add sliced strawberries in fruit or green salads, or in plain yogurt. Strawberries would mix well with banana for a nice delicious and nutritious smoothie.
