Harking back to these fond childhood memories, I decided to make a stone fruit salad after I came across some pristine plums at my local produce market the other day. I combined one red plum and one black plum with a peach and half of a naval orange. I chopped each coarsely and tossed them together. I topped this fruity mix with a squeeze of fresh lemon and a few sprigs of mint from my own garden.
This simple stone salad is great at lunch. I recently had it myself along side an avocado drenched in oil and lemon juice, and some chickpeas mixed with tomatoes and red onion in red wine vinegar. It was divine. But this is also a fruit salad that I can get the carnivore to eat at the end of a meal. It would be great with burgers and grilled corn on a hot summer day. I served it when my mom was visiting with a dollop of honey vanilla greek yogurt topped with a strawberry - delicious!
