Stone fruit salad

Stone fruit salad

At your local farmers market, you can find the ingredients to make a spectacular fruit salad a reality. Stone fruit and almonds, salad greens, and honey all contribute to this tasty treat.

Servings: 4


  • A combination of 4 to 6 yellow peaches, white peaches, nectarines, plums, pluots or apriums
  • Salad greens (baby gem lettuces, arugula or mixed greens)
  • 1/4 cup almonds, slivered
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled


  • 1 tablespoon champagne vinegar (it's worth the trouble to find this)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Make a vertical incision all the way around the peaches and nectarines. Often, if they are ripe, the two halves come apart with a slight twist. Remove the pit. Depending on your personality type and that of your guests, cut all the fruit into irregular shapes and sizes or perfectly symmetrical cubes.
  2. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a bowl.
  3. Toss the dressing with the fruit, almonds, and feta and serve on a bed of greens. This salad received rave reviews in my home and I'm sure it will in yours.
