Along the same line as vvvanessa, my favorite spring dessert is individual baked meringue shells filled with lemon curd that has some whipped cream folded in, then topped with sweetened strawberries and then more whipped cream. Yum!

i'm a big fan of lemon curd with strawberries, so maybe a curd-filled tart topped with berries, or some kind of white or yellow cake with a curd-fruit layer.

Yesterday we made the quick strawberry sherbet from food52 and also one from google---freeze 1 lb. strawbs, 4 - 6 oz. fat free greek yoghurt, 2 Tb. suger.
Both were DELICIOUS and I have more strawbs. in freezer for today.

I know this isn't a dessert and it is a fabulous non-alochol drink of strawberries, lemon and basil

This Lazy Mary Lemon Tart is raved about here. It's on my to-do list.

Lemon pound cake or scones served with sliced strawberries would be nice. You can get this Lemon Loaf Cake, from Baking with Julia into the oven in about 5 minutes:
