Berry Nectarine Salad

(originally made  1/11/2007

Was craving something sweet today, and I had a fridge full of nice fruit. Had this recipe earmarked to try.

Have to say, I screwed it up, but it still came out great LOL :) I didn't read all the directions, and added all the fruit at the beginning. After an hour, I gave it a taste, and debated whether it even needed the cream cheese part. I went ahead, and it's great BOTH ways.
