Summer Fruit and Mozzarella Salad

Summer Fruit and Mozzarella Salad takes advantage of this season's best produce!

Summer Fruit and Mozzarella Salad from Weelicious.com

When I walk into the farmers market in July I have a major problem. I find myself buying not singles or bags, but several flats of peaches, nectarines and other stone fruit. No matter which way I look they jump out screaming my name. 

At their best, summer stone fruits are super juicy and sweet. Stone fruits are perfect for using in homemade fruit leather, mocktails, and even in salads! Over the next few months the variety of peaches changes week to week with an array of flavor profiles and names making it impossible to buy just one. 

When I’m having a group of friends and family over for a bbq or picnic this Summer Fruit and Mozzarella Salad is a dish everyone loves, young and old.

This time of year, we also have a garden explosion of herbs and tomatoes. Fresh herbs and tomatoes make an appearance practically daily around here in the warm summer months. If you have smaller leaves you can add them to your recipes whole and they look perfectly lovely! Herbs can also be torn, or rolled up and thinly sliced into a chiffonade ribbon. 

This is one of those salads you can encourage your kids to make with you. Just help them to pull up a stool with their kid safe knife and cutting board and the team effort begins. Beware as I’ve learned from experience, you may find more cherry tomatoes, watermelon and peaches in your child’s tummy than in the bowl. It only takes 10 minutes or so to chop everything up, toss it in the bowl and give it a big glug of olive oil and a pinch of salt to bring out the magical summer flavors in every bite.

What’s your favorite type of stone fruit? I’m a yellow peach girl, but my kids live for plums and white peaches and nectarines. You can switch it up with any stone fruit that’s ripe and in season. See… I’m drooling just thinking about making this again!

    When I was first diagnosed with Herpes Simplex Virus, one of my greatest fears was that I would never feel romantically or sexually connected to anyone ever again. Those fears have proven to be unfounded; if anything, my dedication to taking care of myself physically, spiritually, and mentally since my diagnosis was what led me to my cure.

    I started going to see different doctors and searching online to get more information, and then I saw an online testimony of how a lady was cured of HERPES by using a Herbal Remedy recently discovered by a doctor named (Vikraft Sambo).

    I decided to take a leap of faith by contacting the doctor because my health is more important to me than anything. After contacting the doctor the proper diagnosis, he then send me the herbal remedy which he prepared for me, And then he gave me few guidelines/prescription on how I am to be taking the medicine.

    After 11 Days of drinking the herbal medicine, I then went for a medical check up, and my doctor was amazed to see my test result showing NEGATIVE.

    kindly contact Dr. Vikraft with the below Link;
