Okay, so I have an admitted obsession with nectarines and mozzarella that has stuck with me all summer. We’re closing out September now and stone fruits are going to start disappearing from the store. I don’t know what I’m going to do. I turned me obsession into a fruit salad that I’m absolutely in love with. We actually ate this as our entire dinner mostly because I couldn’t help but eat an entire bowl full. You can use peaches instead of nectarine, but I just have a love affair with the nectarine and can’t let it go. Make this guys. Everyone who tries it seems to fall in love!
