I love fresh berries and my local grocery store has had them on sale for amazing prices recently. Now you could serve berries just by themselves at your next summer gathering or you could serve this berry cheesecake salad.
You can use any combination of fresh berries in this salad. I used strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries. Then it all gets coated in a simple cheesecake flavored mixture make from cheesecake pudding, cream cheese, and sour cream.
This salad also has a great patriotic look to it. It would be perfect to serve at any 4th of July gathering too.
