Today in Walker's and Addie's lunches, we have lots of crunch and aromatics plus a sweet-tangy dessert.

Tuna and bacon join garlic scapes, celery, radish, and basil in a salad, served on thin slices of brioche with homemade aioli and avocado slices. On the side, sugared strawberries are balanced with crème fraîche.

What's in your lunchbox?

Strawberries are nuts! Actually, they're fruit -- and despite the name, they're not berries. Whether you're eating them plain or with clotted cream, stacking them sky-high with meringues, or using them to top a spinach salad, here's everything you need to know about buying, storing, and eating everyone's favorite all-American fruit (literally -- the Pilgrims had them at the first Thanksgiving) that's versatile, delicious, and as good for snacking as it is for sherbet, ricotta, or roasting.

There's a secret special ingredient snuck in with the Greenmarket fare in today's peek into Amanda's kids' lunchboxes. Here's what they're having, straight from Amanda herself:

"Smoked ham topped with sautéed turnip greens, kale, and fresh garlic. I think a few asparagus spears are snuck in there as well. The local strawberries are nice this year so I've been putting them in every lunch -- sometimes whole, sometimes sliced and mixed with yogurt, and sometimes on top of stewed rhubarb. My kids went to a birthday party where there was a piñata, thus the lollipop and Hershey's Chocolate. I let our kids have commercial candy now and then, but I draw the line at fast food!"

"When I don't have much inspiration or if I have a more challenging ingredient, cream cheese is my secret weapon. Kids love cream cheese so it can help soften the blow of flavors like radish or pickled ramps. That's just what I packed here, along with fresh strawberries from the Union Square Greenmarket."
- Amanda

We hope Walker and Addie packed enough to share, because their lunch looks fantastic. What are you having?
