Strawberry Pecan Salad
My mom was not a cook. She had a few recipes she could follow to a T and they always turned out delicious, that was the extent of her cooking. This salad is one of them. It always reminds me of her and special days. What she did make though, she always made with love. As a kid it didn't matter to me whether a meal was from a box or from scratch. What mattered was that my mom prepared it and served it to me, and in doing so, she showed her love for me.
