Berry Salad With Passionfruit

This berry salad makes for a light, cool, and refreshing summer treat.

Tart, sweet and juicy, berries come in many varieties — from bright and delicate raspberries to sweet strawberries, from plump little blueberries to rich, fragrant blackberries. Thanks to importers, you can buy almost all berries in any season. If one kind is not available, substitute another. Passionfruits add a tart edge.
