This is a beautiful summer dessert!
During the summer months, fresh strawberries are one of my favorite treats! Nothing says summer to me like the sweet tart flavor of amazing fresh strawberries from the market or garden!
This dessert is wonderfully easy and requires no baking (yay to not turning on the oven!). It is both light and rich at the same time (and is not too sweet). If you’ve never made an icebox cake before, they are wonderful and so easy!
