Honey Lime Stone Fruit Salad is a refreshing summer salad that makes a wonderful dessert.
Stone fruits are fruits that have a pit in the center. This fruit salad combines peaches, plums, cherries and nectarines. If you make sure they are fully ripe, they will be amazing. The addition of honey, a bit of lime juice and fresh mint leaves enhances them and the result is so delicious.
Having the fruit ripened is the key to success with this salad. Depending on the ripeness of the fruit when you purchase it, you may need to let it sit out for a couple days. You want the fruit to have a sweet smell and be slightly soft to the touch.
