My mom and siblings picked a few gallons of fresh strawberries at our local strawberry patch last week, so I’ve had strawberries on the brain. At lunch one day I felt like eating something unique, so I took stock of what we had on hand and threw together a quick quesadilla using some very nontraditional ingredients. Skeptical? Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it! Trust me, this is definitely not the strangest thing I’ve come up with….
If you have ham left over from Easter, this would be a great way to use it up!
Ham and Swiss cheese are a traditional pairing, of course, but where did the strawberries come from? I honestly have no idea. I just thought they might work to brighten up the heavier flavors from the ham and cheese, and I was right! Spinach adds some great color and necessary veggies, horseradish lends a unique element, and refined coconut oil (no coconut flavor wanted here!) turns a low-carb tortilla into a miraculously crispy quesadilla.
Yes, it’s very much an outside-the-box Briana flavor combination. That’s a good thing, right? 😛 If you try it, comment below and let me know what you think!
