Grilled peaches and plums served over baby greens with walnuts and a sweet honey goat cheese dressing, this salad is light and delicious utilizing some of my favorite summer fruits.
While I hate to think of summer as having an expiration date, the fact that it’s coming close to the end has me savoring every last moment. I'm a little excited about the change of seasons, but I always mourn the end of summer. So I'm trying to enjoy every last bit of summer’s bounty.
