MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 20, 2012

This is so easy and so delicious! We make it several times during the summer. I use kiwi instead of peaches in the center.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 10, 2008

This was sooooo easy to make and it looked beautiful when I served it. I omitted the peach, nectarine and used raspberries, blueberries & strawberries. The strawberries were only in the center. The raspberries and blueberries look great together alternating each row.

It looked good and tasted even better! A keeper, in fact I'm making this dessert again tonight using grapes, raspberries & strawberries. The blue berries were too expensive this week!
