I’m sure I’m not alone in the fact that most of the time after a Mexican meal, I don’t typically have dessert. I’m guaranteed to have already over indulged with chips and guac as well as tacos. There’s no place for anything particularly rich or decadent at the end of a meal like that. Still, it is nice to be able to end the meal on a sweet and refreshing note. While paletas are a lovely option, it’s also good to have something a bit more structured and with a touch of wow factor, especially for entertaining. Strawberry margarita pie has got you covered.
This recipe isn’t entirely new to the site, but the former version was super old with standard super old photos. Nevertheless, the concept is still a great one and I decided it needed some minor recipe tweaks and a new set of glamour shots. This new version switches out sweetened condensed milk for Greek yogurt to provide a better sweet-tart flavor balance with a slight tang and a lovely creamy texture. As it turns out, the crust holds together just fine with slightly less butter. Lastly, the sprinkle of coarse salt flakes immediately before serving adds the perfect finishing touch.
As we head into the warmer months, this dessert will become a useful piece in your repertoire. It’s a beauty that slices neatly, tastes surprisingly like its cocktail counterpart, and is cool and refreshing. Even better, it’s easy and comes together very quickly. What more could you want?
