Mixed Berry Pavlova

When I was younger and starting a family, it seemed as though I never got my own Mother’s Day. So when my children got married and had their own family, I suggested that they enjoy their own Mother’s Day without entertaining me as long as each of them planned a special day for the two of us sometime during the year. This way I got three fun special events on different days and a lot of face to face quality time with each one of my children.

Mixed Berry Pavlova

Named for the legendary ballerina Anna Pavlova; this dessert combines tangy fruit and crunchy meringue.

1 Pavlova shell (see newsletter/May 2011)
6 cups mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blue berries, blueberries etc.) cut as for
fruit salad and mixed with a pinch of salt and super-fine sugar to taste.
2 pints best-quality vanilla ice cream (optional; not traditionally included in a Pavlova
but very good)
Whipped cream topping (see recipe in May 2011 recipe/joke)

Place the Pavlova shell on a cake plate. Soften the ice cream (if using). Spread first the ice cream and then the whipped cream over the shell. Top with the berries. Slice into wedges.
