Author Notes

The quickest dessert you'll make all summer with any berry you have on hand, even the almost-had-their-day ones. Perfect for last-minute entertaining - I make this first, pop it in the fridge and get on with the rest of the meal prep. No looking back and guaranteed to be on your dessert rotation for the rest of summer —foodfanatic

I mixed strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries and me and my family loved it! Light and delicious, perfect summer dessert. Great recipe!

Mascarpone and strawberries has to be one of the best combination ever, and I love how simple this recipe is! Seems like a great one to have on hand.
