Let’s celebrate mother’s day with something strawberry! It’s perfectly convenient that this fragrant edible berry is in season the same time we honor Mom. Strawberries are not only a healthy and delicious stand alone snack but a versatile fruit that can be the used in a myriad of recipes from strawberry pie to Thai pork kebabs with strawberry quinoa salad!
If you want to keep it real simple, (this always works for me) treat mom to a glass of homemade strawberry lemonade. My recipe below is a light version of a Martha Stewart recipe. Whether you’re planning a brunch or a backyard barbeque, this light beverage is sure to fit in!
