If any of you are thinking that veggies are the only thing in abundance over the summer months, you are wrong! The divine fruits!! Blackberries, Strawberries, Blueberries, Peaches, Apricots, Cherries, and my absolute favorite: Raspberries!!
So, how can one not celebrate these gorgeous things?? Here are two more salads that elevate the fruits of the season to another level altogether! I used Buffala Mozzarella to offset the sweetness of the fruits in both these salads, one with apricots and peaches and the other with strawberries! The simplicity of these beautiful no-cook salads will blow your mind and give you time with your guests to relax and enjoy!
Tell me that are you are not salivating!!
