The jammy sweetness of a strawberry makes it a perfect candidate for savory sauces and marinades, as it adds complexity, depth and freshness. Here, we started with peak-season PA strawberries, then add ginger and chipotle for a kick. Local chicken wings (we like Bell & Evans) get a whirl through an air fryer – so much healthier than traditional deep frying – and then the wings are tossed in this ruby red sauce. A dish of wings is incomplete without a creamy dipping sauce, so we go classic here with a straight-up blue cheese dressing that makes a tasty accompaniment. The strawberry sauce would also make a tasty glaze for ribs or condiment for pork chops!
