Easy Strawberry Shortcake
My mother always made this recipe for the Fourth of July. It followed
a wonderful meal of grilled hamburgers or steak and her fabulous
potato salad. But it’s a great dessert any time of the year.
1 loaf frozen pound cake, thawed
3 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 cup heavy cream
3 Tbsp. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Using a potato masher, mash half of the strawberries. Stir in the
sliced strawberries and chill. Beat cream with powdered sugar and
vanilla. Slice pound cake, place each piece on serving plate, top
with strawberry mixture and a dollop of cream.
Serve immediately. You can make your own pound cake instead of using
the frozen version if you’d like, but the frozen one (I love Sara
Lee) is so good, why bother? Serves 8

3/4 cup low fat lemon yogurt

2 cups cantaloupe balls
2 cups sliced strawberries
In small bowl, mix yogurt, juice and cinnamon and blend well with
whisk. Combine remaining ingredients in salad bowl and drizzle with
salad dressing. Cover and chill until serving. 4 servings
