Contest-Winning Strawberry Salsa
Guests often try to guess the secret ingredient in this. None think of strawberries...but many ask for the recipe. Our six children—all daughters—are grown, and we have 10 grandchildren. Knitting is among my hobbies, so I plan on making an afghan for all 16 of them. So far, I've finished 10!
