I saw this recipe in Taste of Home and it looked so pretty and delicious I couldn't resist trying it and posting it here to share. It is a very elegant looking dessert but so simple to make. The gingersnap crust is such a perfect complement to the strawberries. A scrumptious dessert without a lot of calories. I'm sure it will taste even more delicious when strawberries are in season. Prep time does not include time for chilling.

This was desert on Mother's Day. I skipped the crystallized ginger but it was still great.

I am sure these would taste loads better with fresh strawberries but I had none and I used fresh frozen and it still tasted pretty darn good! Looks gorgeous too.
