Cheese Stuffed Strawberries

An easy healthy snack I'd like to share with you today
is a cheese stuffed strawberry. These are great for a snack,
an appetizer or dessert or even a simple palate cleanser 
in between dishes during a multi-course dinner.

Take a handful of strawberries (medium to large) and cut them in half. 
Next, take a little teaspoon and scoop the center out a little. 
The center of a strawberry isn't completely solid so it's pretty effortless.
For the picture above, I trimmed the stems.  

You can stuff feta cheese crumbs in the center and add a sprinkle of coarse
sea-salt or you can add blue cheese crumbles and some peanut (or any nut)
with a drizzle of honey.  The sweetness of the honey goes well with the already
salty blue cheese while the feta feta cheese isn't as salty so the sea-salt gives
a nice contrast in flavor.  You can just leave the stems on (picture below)
instead of trimming them off as well.
