Fennel & stone fruit salad

This easy fennel & stone fruit salad uses seasonal ingredients and a simple vinaigrette.

There’s nothing quite like making a dish like using seasonal ingredients so consider this your reminder to make this salad while we still have peak stone fruits! This is a nectarine and fennel salad with vinegar, chili flakes and basil. I used nectarine for this, but you can use really any stone fruit for the sweetness. It’s super versatile and you can put your own unique twist on this salad. This salad is super easy to make just gather your fennel, your choice of stone fruit, white wine vinegar, red pepper flakes and basil. The dressing is super simple, just your olive oil and white wine vinegar will do the trick! This salad really speaks for itself that so the dressing doesn’t need to overpower. Fennel is a hearty vegetable and has a unique taste to it so the sweetness from the stone fruit really compliments the bitterness of fennel.
