November is usually when my strong cravings for strawberries surface. The persistent craving of fresh berries lasts most of the winter season. Now that berry season has finally arrived, my taste buds couldn’t be happier. To me, berries are the epitome of Spring.

Spring also equals the beginning of picnics….

Step aside soggy fruit salad, that often makes a shameful appearance on the picnic table, and enter this flavorful mixed berry salad. A sure crowd pleaser, with it’s bold fresh flavors, bright colors, and intoxicating berry smell; hold your head high and proudly place this dish on the picnic table.
