Around my town we have these single standing strawberry stands set up randmly here and there and I love it! It’s so easy to get persuaded by those big signs and those extra juicy and sweet smell strawberries. I bought an entire flat of them the other day and have been making tons of strawberry things including jams, salsas, salads, etc. Today we have this Strawberry and Pistachio Tart that I’ve also been making with the loads of strawberries I have.
This tart is so easy to make and really tasty. It’s perfect to enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea for breakfast or with a scoop of ice cream for dessert. I also like how simple and pretty this tart is, so it’s also a great crowd pleaser. I might be making this for 4th of July this year to serve with scoops of rich vanilla bean ice cream. So simple and so good. Enjoy! xx, Jenny
