In Season Now: Figs and Nectarines

Beautiful and Delicious!

I love the combination of the peaches and figs so I was inspired to put them together to make a gorgeous salad.I brought this salad to a party last week and it was a huge hit!  It was so simple and easy to put together.   The beautiful presentation and the tasty combination of flavors are so easy to achieve when you use ingredients that are fresh and at the peak of their growing season.

This was a HUGE salad!  Please cut the ingredients in half to serve 4.
