Recipe Roundup: Strawberry-Banana Salad

I love this time of the year when the stores are loaded with fresh strawberries. I can satisfy my sweet-tooth and not feel the least bit guilty about it. ;-)

There are a lot of recipes that can be made with strawberries but the one I make most for the family is a quick and easy recipe that makes everyone happy.
