While a luscious peach cobbler recipe is probably the classic summer peach recipe, I’m instead sharing with you a much lighter (and healthier!) savory nectarine salad.
This salad has been one of my go-to summer salads for years now. It’s borderline embarrassing how frequently I eat this salad during the summer. Since it’s easy to throw together and relatively healthy, it’s great for busy nights when you just want something simple and delicious.
The best parts of this salad are the peaches and fresh mint! The herb lends a freshness to the dish, while the nectarines bring sweetness and juiciness to the dish. With a glass of white wine, it’s a perfect summer meal.
I particularly like the visual appeal of having a pile of arugula with the ingredients separated, but feel free to toss the ingredients all together in a bowl as well.
