It’s early October and fall has officially arrived, but it’s still hot in Southern California, so a light salad is the way to go. Plus, it’s the perfect time to say  thank you and goodbye to the last few stoned fruits wanting to be admired and enjoyed this season! This fortuitous stone fruit and arugula salad pays tribute to 5 different types of stone fruits, providing different tastes and textures. It’s fortuitous because it has 8 ingredients, which is our key number this October for many reasons! Eight is a number that represents health, wealth, prosperity and fertility. It’s the perfect way to help you close out the summer, and start preparing your body, (and your garden!) ready for Autumn.
