"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Start in the bottom of a glass serving bowl with blackberries. Start with blackberries or you can buy a triple berry mixture in the frozen food department at Trader Joe's or Target that can keep the salad cold as it thaws. Sprinkle a tablespoon of sugar or less in between each layer as you add in the different colors of fruit. You can pick the fruit by season and sweeten according to taste. Put the red on top. Finish with sugar. Let the fruit sit for a while so the sugar dissolves.
