I always go for the side salads first at a picnic, don’t you? I want to see what everyone has brought — the crunchy stuff, the fruity mixtures, the tangy and the tasty.

I’m bringing a fruity, cheesy salad to our July 4th picnic, and it takes advantage of fresh seasonal berries, those tiny little balls of fresh mozzarella, and some orange-flavored olive oil for the simple dressing.

And you might not even need a hot dog or a burger, with flavors like this.
