No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake

As we gear up for the heat of summer, this strawberry cheesecake is absolute perfection. The fresh sweet berries and creamy cheesecake are layered on top of a rich graham cracker crust and none of it has to be baked.  Just because it is fast and easy to make doesn’t mean it shouldn’t also be gorgeous.
