Im mad about all the stone fruits! Because what’s not to like? I’ve always like to have them for breakfast, or just eat them as they are… but over the summer I’ve started to love making savory salads and dishes including all the summer fruits. They really add such a lovely taste and make a nice and fresh addition to a salad or meal. It’s like you’re taking your favorite salad or dish to the next level by adding sweet, fresh and delicious summer fruit to it! I’ve been quite reluctant to use fruits in my cooking, thinking its a weird combination and associated it with really weird food combinations that I remember from my childhood. But then I thought I give it a go and got hooked right away. Adding a sweet, juicy or even tart fruit to your dish can really lift the most basic and bland dish and make it something super delicious. This stone fruit salad is a very simple and easy salad only using three stone fruits, tomatoes, spinach, fennel, lemon and pesto. So simple and easy, yet it turns out so delicious. This salad is perfect to eat on its own or to serve as a starter or side dish to your main course. It is both vegetarian, gluten and grain free.
A few tips:
- Use medium ripe fruits so that they are easy to cut, juicy, sweet and fresh but doesn’t become a mash when you cut them. They should be firm, but still not too hard.
- Use lemon juice and zest according to taste.
- I topped my salad with a home made pesto, but you can use any pesto you like or have at home.
- I topped this salad with hazelnuts, but you can add any nuts or seeds you like or prefer.
