Menu Plan for Spring II: Week 9, Sunday

Spring Greens Salad with Ham and Asparagus
Fresh Strawberries with Yogurt and Mint

Cooking time: 25 minutes for menu             Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

    I originally used smoked turkey in this, but it's unavailable here so I switched to ham. The Creamy Herb Dressing is similar to a commercial Ranch dressing. This should finish the goat cheese and the radishes.

Fresh Strawberries with Yogurt and Mint

   A bit of sugar and Greek Yogurt is wonderful with fresh strawberries.... and ever so much healthier than cream.  If you have fresh mint - that will finish it just right!
