This refreshing medley expertly takes advantage of summer's bounty. “The blend of ripe berries and peaches, drizzled with fruit juices and mint, makes it so special,” says Betty Kleberger of Florissant, Missouri.
Here's a colorful salad with a wide range of tastes and textures that go together so well. There are sweet peaches, tart lemon, tangy vinegars and all kinds of crunch from greens, bacon and nuts. —Denise Elder, Hanover, Ontario

Then top the table with this swan server for any kind of festive function—and be prepared for a smile to crop up on everyone’s face!Taste of Home Test Kitchen
A dear friend shared this recipe with me years ago. Now it's my favorite dish to take to a church meeting, shower or any potluck eventit's always a hit. Whenever I serve this salad, people ask for the recipe. They find it hard to believe it's really made with buttermilk!
My great-aunt gave me the recipe for this rich, fruity salad, which goes especially well with a ham dinner. Before I even tasted it, I knew it would be good. I've never walked away from her kitchen disappointed.

Since this is originally my daughter's recipe, she or I will make it for one or more of our holiday get-togethers. It can be served as a fruit salad along with the meal or as a light dessert. It's particularly pretty in a cut-glass bowl on a buffet.
