When I saw this recipe on RecipeGirl I knew it was the perfect choice for 4th of July festivities. It doesn't include any unusual ingredients and it's easy to make ahead. It feature lots of yummy summer fruits, you can size it up or down depending on your crowd, and it's a "dump it all in and mix" kind of recipe. My favorite!
