RED FRUIT SALAD (Adapted from Pip and Ebby)

I just love the idea of this bold colored fruit salad!  Simple and easy to make (other than coring the cherries – but WORTH it!), it just adds life to your meal!

Three 6-oz. containers fresh raspberries, rinsed

Two 16-oz. containers fresh strawberries, hulled, rinsed and chopped
2 cups Bing cherries, pitted and chopped
1 1⁄2 TBSP fresh basil, chopped
2 TBSP granulated sugar
Juice from 1 lemon
In a large bowl, combine the raspberries, strawberries and cherries. In a small bowl, combine the basil, sugar and lemon juice. Mix well and drizzle over fruit. Gently incorporate the liquid with a large spoon, being careful not to break the raspberries, until the fruit is thoroughly coated.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Now – how gorgeous is that salad????
