Summer Stone Fruit Salad

It’s so funny to that I worked in retail, I know all the tips and tricks to catch the customers eyes and to drive sales but I still fall victim to ruse of a good display. Soooo, 10 lbs of stone fruit later I cheerfully bring you this delicious Summer Stone Fruit salad.

STONE-FRUIT-MAIN2

You know you are in the peak of summer when your local Wholefoods assigns 20% of their floor pad to stone fruit. Yesterday I walked into the devil’s den, aka the money sucker, aka taste test central, aka damn it they got me again, aka Whole Foods; and I am greeted by a beautifully vast display of stone fruit. I mean all you can eat peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots and pluots in different varieties. “LORD help me nooooowwwww,” the words I cried deep in my spirit knowing that I wasn’t going to be able to resist going ALL the way in. And by all the way in I mean, buying several of each.

 

But what brings the dish home is the jalapeno and prosecco Vinaigrette … yes you heard that right, BOMB.com. I used the traditional olive oil base and blitzed in fresh jalapeno, lemon zest and mint, prosecco, honey and salt and pepper and it turned out to be a perfect addition to the salad.

Finally I topped the salad with feta, toasted pecans microgreens and a little bit more mint. Let me tell you when I took the first bite I knew that salad had no chance for survival.

 

Listen, don’t take my word for it, try it for yourself. This recipe is super easy to execute and is perfect for a summer bbq. You can use any combination of stone fruit. Let your creative juices run wild. And if you give it a try, make sure you tag your girl #meikoandthedish @meikoandthedish #teamgreedy.

WHAT IS STONE FRUIT?

 A stone fruit, also called a drupe, is a fruit with a hard pit or stone-like center that houses its seed. Peaches, mangoes, almonds, dates, and cherries are all stone fruits.

How to cut stone fruit?

Starting at the fruit’s stem, run the knife around the fruit, keep the blade against the pit, and finish the cut where you started. Hold the fruit in your hands, gently twist the two halves in the opposite directions until the pit’s fruit detaches. A spoon or the end of the knife can then be used to dislodge the pit.
