This delicious salad was made for us by Marybeth Wells of Living Wells. She used Cherry Plums but you can certainly use any stone fruit, like nectarines or peaches.

"This Cherry Plum and Heirloom Tomato Summer Salad tastes like a smattering of summer in each bite.

Not the kind of summer that’s sticky, uncomfortable, and leaves you feeling ready for fall. The good kind of summer that’s full to the brim with warm sunshine on your face, bold flavors, and possibility.
