Nectarine Summer Salad is a glorious salad. It’s so lovely it’s almost….almost…..to pretty to eat. One bite in and you forget all about it being pretty! Then it’s all about it’s yummiliciousness!! (oh ya that’s a word)
Notes from my salad bowl:
I only used 1 bag of spring greens and only a portion of the dressing to serve 6 people. To that, I added a basket of raspberries, 2 white nectarines, 6 ounces of goat cheese and 1/2 cup pistachios.
