Strawberry-Banana Cheesecake Salad

Surely anything with the word SALAD in the title is good for you. So I’ll be serving myself some of this TODAY!! With the weather warming up, everyone has Spring on their minds!

Foggy nights give way to sunny days, the air tinged with crispness. People smile more. Neighbor noise more bearable, even our “Zombie” neighbor. Strangers are a little less mean (except when parking spaces are involved). The first of the spring things are popping up at markets: rosy rhubarb and strawberries, asparagus , spring onions, and pale green garlic. And what better way to celebrate the glorious sunny weather than to savour the earlier-than-expected arrival of this year’s first crop of delicious strawberries.
Yup, It’s Strawberry Time Again !!!!! The much awaited spring gardening delicacy has finally arrived.
