Strawberry Salad

Apr 28, 2017 1:47:36 PM

Spring brings beautiful, sweet strawberries!  If you are lucky, there could be a strawberry patch near you where you can spend a morning picking your own!  What a wonderful way to spend the day with your kids, sharing berries with neighbors and preparing a wonderful meal.

Picking Berries

With Mother's Day approaching think about incorporating strawberries into a wonderful salad like Decor Gold Designs did on her patio party.
