Servings: 6-8 (starter or side dish)
The perfect salad to add a little spice to your summer! For a party version, try adding a one-ounce shot of tequila to the dressing. Rim the glasses with a squeeze of lime juice, then twirl the edges on a small plate of salt or sugar.

For the Dressing:
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 oz. tequila (optional)
Pinch of kosher salt
1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped

For the Salad:
1 fresh white peach
2 fresh yellow peaches
2 fresh white or yellow nectarines
2 fresh plums
1 cup watermelon, balled or cubed
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Lime wedges
Mint sprigs

For the dressing, combine the lime juice and honey in a small bowl and whisk until the honey dissolves. Add a pinch of kosher salt, to taste. Add chopped mint; set aside while cutting the fruit.

For the salad, rinse fruit and remove the pits; cut into thin wedges or one-inch chunks. Combine all fruit in a large bowl; pour dressing over the fruit, stirring gently to distribute. Sprinkle on cayenne pepper and adjust to taste. Serve with a lime wedge and a mint sprig.

Makes 6-8 servings (starter or side dish).
