Heirloom Tomato Salad with Nectarines, Avocado, and Arugula
With farmers' markets overflowing with the most wonderful summer produce, what better way to embrace this seasonal bounty than a salad that combines fresh heirloom tomatoes, peppery arugula, white nectarines, and sliced avocado. A bright, simple vinaigrette of extra-virgin olive oil and white vinegar brings out the fresh flavors. A generous sprinkle of flaky sea salt tops it off!
