Minty Fruit Salad

Now, that spring is in full swing I welcome the warm weather with this beautiful fruit salad.

This makes the salad feel fancy enough to serve to guests for a potluck, picnic, or party. I actually took this fruit salad to a picnic last week and people loved it. Continue Reading

Finally, the cake is decorated with lemon curd which adds an explosion of lemon flavor to every bite. Continue Reading
