Fresh Strawberries with Citrus Sauce

We enjoy this time of year finding fresh strawberries at our local farmers market. A simple and elegant dessert to make!  Fresh Strawberries marinated in fresh lemon and orange citrus sauce is sweet and refreshing!


A delightful treat, and so simple… it just screams summer!  Sweetened with a little sugar,  makes this a light, low-calorie dessert perfect for any summer night!

Simply marinate the strawberries in the sauce just before serving. Then enjoy them in an elegant glass, here we used our martini glasses.  Add some whip cream or vanilla ice cream and you have a magnificent dessert!  Mmm so delicious!

Our mother believes that simplicity in food is sometimes the best taste in life!   She is so right! … and adorable!  Enjoy!  Just in time for this holiday weekend!

    Strawberries are one of our favorites and we really like to serve fruit desserts. Love the idea of the Limoncello in this. I always have a bottle on hand. Driscoll strawberries are the best.

    Fabulous photos too.
