This nectarine salad is light, bright and delicious. Perfect for warm days, it has a wonderful combination of sweet and tart and bold. This salad has some surprising ingredients, but they work together perfectly. It feels a little sophisticated (perfect to bring to a party), and could not be easier. Literally 3 steps.
The quantities below serve 4 as a side. Double or triple to bring to or serve at a party.
4 nectarines sliced in 8ths
zest of 1 lime
2 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup cucumber halved and sliced thinly
1/2 cup black grapes halved
1/2 cup red onion thinly sliced
2 tbs finely chopped mint
- Thinly slice red onion. Place slices in a medium-sized bowl and cover with cool water to soak for 10 minutes (this mellows the harsh bite of onion).
- Zest and juice lime and cut up fruit.
- Drain onions and toss all ingredients in a large bowl.
- Serve immediately, leaving enough room on your plate for other people’s dishes, too.
