Bring this simple but delicious berry pie to your next summer picnic or get-together. Strawberries and blueberries make the base of this pie while crushed strawberries and juice make up the glaze that pulls it all together. Be prepared to refrigerate this pie for at least four hours before serving.

- 5 tbsp cornstarch
- pinch of salt
- 1 baked pie shell (8-inch)
- 4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
