Stone Fruit Salad

Written by Eydie Desser

It’s early October, and it’s 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 delightful salad pays tribute to these wonderful fruits.  We chose 5 different stone fruits, providing different tastes and textures. It’s fortuitous because it has 8 ingredients. Eight is a number that represents health, wealth, prosperity and fertility—can’t get much better than that, to close out the summer.

  • (1) 5-oz. box, baby arugula
