Strawberry Apple Salad

Another great way to enjoy spring is to make a fresh salad! This Strawberry Apple Salad is one of my favorites. Put it in a mason jar and you can take it along on your picnic.

And if you are looking for a dressing for this salad, you will love this Maple Syrup Dressing!. Just keep it separate from the salad until you are ready to serve.

Banana Cream Cheesecake in a Jar

For dessert, we are going back to our favorite mason jar for this Banana Cream Cheesecake in a Jar! It’s easy and so fresh when outside enjoying a picnic.
