Independence Day is right around the corner and what would your July 4th barbecue be without a red, white and blue dessert? Strawberries and blueberries are fresh in the market right now, and this recipe couldn’t be easier, because there’s no baking involved, and you can make it well in advance of your cookout, even the day before.

Ingredients: 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted, divided 50 vanilla wafer cookies, finely crushed 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 1 (3.4-oz.) pkg. vanilla flavored instant pudding 1 cup cold milk 1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed

Preparation: Reserve 1 tablespoon sliced almonds. Finely chop remaining almonds; combine with wafer crumbs and butter in a medium bowl, tossing to coat. Press the mixture evenly onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch tart pan or pie plate. Whisk pudding mix and milk for about 2 minutes. Gently stir in whipped topping with a rubber spatula. Pour mixture into the crust. Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm. Top with berries and remaining 1 tablespoon almonds just before serving.
