Summer Berry Salad

I love salads! They are so refreshing! I must admit that I eat one almost every day. Not only can a salad pack a nutritional punch, it’s light for the summer heat. Here is a wonderfully refreshing salad, that just screams summer. I love the vibrant color of all of this particular salad. It makes it appealing to the eyes and the appetite.
