This Easy Summer Stone Fruit Salad is the perfect summer salad. It’s full of peaches, nectarines, cherries, tomatoes, blue cheese, and sunflower seeds. Plus, I used store-bought strawberry poppyseed dressing that’s full of flavor and makes this a quick, easy, summer salad.
I struggle around lunch time pretty much every day. I’m hungry midday but have little to no plan to feed myself. I work from home so I don’t have to pack a lunch or meal prep because I’m just a few feet from my kitchen. Salads are my go-to in the summertime but honestly I’ve been in a salad rut. It’s not a bad kind of rut. My go to salad is super tasty but I’ve had it a few times a week for about the last six months. With all of this fresh fruit in season right now, I needed to mix it up a bit.
This stone fruit salad is so easy to make and it’s great to eat a meal that’s fresh and in season. This salad includes peaches, nectarines, cherries, tomatoes, blue cheese, and sunflower seeds. It’s so delicious. Since this is my new go-to summer salad, it had to be something that I could essentially spend a few minutes throwing together and get on with my day.
I love homemade salad dressings but this Marzetti Simply Dressed Strawberry Poppyseed Dressing was the perfect addition to this salad. I don’t have to commit to whipping together a homemade dressing and it’s absolutely delicious. Now, you can totally whip together a homemade version of this dressing but I like to have dressings on hand that are ready to go when I am so that I never have an excuse.
You will love this simple salad as much as I do. And, you’ll also love how flavorful and satisfying it is. Plus, add in some chicken, fish, or tofu for added protein! I skipped it this go around because I like to skip meat during lunch (trying to lower that carbon footprint, friends).
