Celebrate the end of summer with these sweet strawberry dishes

What's better than strawberries in summer? (Hint: nothing.) The fab fruit tastes great by the handful, dipped in a little chocolate, piled high with whipped cream on shortcake...mmmm. The berries are so delicious, in fact, that it seems unfair to enjoy them in an exclusively dessert capacity. Instead of waiting until after dinner, why not try them as an entree, appetizer or even midnight snack? Check out some of the best berry dishes below:
