M-x customize-face RET font-lock-string-face RET

In the foreground:color field, edit to the name of a color you like.
Remember to hit the "Save for Future Sessions" button before exiting.

Anticipating your next question --- M-x list-colors-display will show
you the names of all the colors emacs can display written in that color.
