Summer has finally hit me! I just finished my dietetic internship and now I have (what feels) like all the time in the world to create yummy recipes and finally get back on my recipe redux posts! For this month's Recipe Redux, I was ready to take on some of my favorite ingredients. The theme being "Peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots: we love them all! And they are at their peak season now in summer. So show us your favorite healthy recipe celebrating stone fruits", I knew a delicious and colorful sweet and savory summer salad would hit the spot!

This recipe is simple and only needs 5 awesome ingredients
