May is strawberry season here on the east coast of the USA. The days are longer, the weather is warmer, and for many the desire to spend more time outside while keeping cool kicks in. Try these very easy to prepare, delicious, and light strawberry dessert options that compete with the best of strawberries and whipped cream. None will take hours to prepare, and all can be enjoyed in the comfort of your home or while walking or sitting outside. For all these treats, wash, dry, remove stems, and slice the strawberries.
The first 3 simple strawberry desserts are adapted from the Italian way of eating strawberries and were introduced to me during my time there as a student. I’ve made some minor, contemporary tweaks for the ultimate in food quality.
