Fresh berries add an unexpected twist to the feta and black bean tacos.

I can’t seem to control myself around strawberries these days. I buy flat after flat with the intention of DOING something with them, but they just look so juicy and sweet and perfect that I end up eating them, straight from the carton, unabashedly “as is”.

That is, until I made these tacos. And now I can’t think of doing anything else with them! They are the perfect mix of sweet spicy savory and allow you to still appreciate the beautiful flavor of in-season berries, just in a new (and equally delicious) light.

Looking to spruce up your usual summer potato salad? By adding just a couple special ingredients or even changing the type of potato, you can bring that ordinary potato salad back to life. Here I used sweet potato to give this potato salad an unusual kick. The color combination of orange and black is more Halloween than Fourth of July, but to me this salad is all summer. The cinnamon gives it an earthy fall flavor, but the lime kicks it back into the sunny season we all love. I prefer it to regular potato salad because sweet potato can be more flavorful and dimensional, as well as healthier because of its fiber content.
