In the summer, I always stock up on seasonal fruit. I love to have fresh organic fruit to snack on, add to my smoothies, or cook with. I especially love to add nectarines & peaches to my kitchen fruit bowl, which makes my kitchen smell so sweet & fragrant.
Needless to say, summertime calls for a sweet summer stone fruit salad! This stone fruit & heirloom tomato salad is perfectly refreshing and great for a summer picnic or barbeque. Enjoy!
