This is my own origional recipe and it is AWESOME !! Of Course I LOVE fresh Summer Fruit. I usually have wonderful, fresh fruit at my disposal in the Summer. I grow some and so do my friends. We have the sweetest strawberries in the nation and several strawberry farmers, blueberry farmers, peach farmers, and melon farmers. I am Blessed ! This salad is so easy made and so delicious all by itself. I don't like Winter time so I'm dreaming of Summer and this awesome salad. Indulge yourself !
