This recipe has been a family favorite for several years now. I make this tart several times every summer when the berries are ripe and sweet. Whenever I bring this to a family get together, I often make at least 2 because it is always the first dessert to disapear. It makes a beautiful presentation, and is very light and refreshing on a hot summer day!
