Oregon Summer Berry Salad

The pear might Oregon's official fruit but I'm all about the berries in the summertime. Fresh fruit stands and u-pick farms; that's what I think of when I think of summers in the Willamette Valley.

This salad combines some of my favorites with a fresh lemon dressing and goat cheese. Mmmmm. Goat cheese, lemons and fruit: a winning trio.
