Stone Fruit Salad with Poppyseed Dressing

Stone Fruit Salad with Poppyseed Dressing recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
I am always happy this time of year to see stone fruits in abundance.  I bought so many of them this week; I wanted to put them in a salad. I started to make a honey lime vinaigrette to toss with the salad, but then I remembered my favorite poppyseed dressing.

The dressing was absolutely perfect with this salad. I made this for lunch today and then I happily made it for dinner again tonight. I'm so glad that I have plenty of these fruits in the house, because I am already looking forward to having this again tomorrow.

Stone Fruit Salad
Yield: 2-3 servings
(printable salad and dressing recipe)

2 handfuls of baby spinach, I made this with spring mix lettuces once, however I much preferred the spinach
1 yellow peach
1 white nectarine
1 red plum
1 black plum
2 prune plums
Poppyseed dressing - recipe below

Thinly slice or dice the fruit into bite size pieces. The first time I made this salad, I sliced thinly and I diced the next time. I preferred the diced pieces. Place the spinach in a bowl or on a large plate and top with the fruit. Gently toss to combine and then drizzle with dressing. Enjoy!
