I confess I love the warm weather. I'm a Northeastern native (Massachusetts) but Florida has definitely become my home. I miss the fall up north but the fact that summer seems to last and last down here is what is so amazing. This summer berry salad incorporates everything I love about it getting warmer; grilling every day, fresh berries, an herb garden bursting with fresh, fragrant mint. Add a crisp, cool glass of white wine and there isn't much that could make me happier.
In the interest of making this salad lighter I decided to forgo cheese and/or nuts but the addition of some creamy goat cheese, feta, walnuts or pecans would be divine.

Serves 1 (But can easily be multiplied to make plenty more.)
