Salsa di fragole: Strawberry sauce is a culinary sauce and coulis prepared using strawberries as the main ingredient. It is typically used as a dessert sauce, although it can also be used on savory dishes. Simple versions can be prepared using blended, macerated, or crushed strawberries and sugar, along with some cornstarch as a thickener. This simple mixture can be cooked to marry the ingredient flavors and to enable the cornstarch to thicken if used. Lemon juice is also sometimes used as an ingredient. Fresh or frozen strawberries can be used in its preparation.
