      Our strawberry patch is overflowing, so I prepared this for Memorial Day. I love the orange flavors with the strawberries (love Cointreau!); just the right balance of flavors. I served this over some simple Edy's vanilla ice cream and omitted the pistachios only because I didn't have any, but I'll bet the greenish nuts make a nice color contrast, so I'll definitely be trying the recipe with them in the future. Thanks for posting, Toolie!
