White Nectarine, Pecan & Haloumi salad

Summer fruits are currently on their last legs in Australia.

And this salad is the ideal way to use one of my faves - juicy and sweet white nectarines.

If you're a regular on this blog or my instagram, you'll likely be familiar with my love for salads. And how deliciously diverse my definition of that term is!

This is a great example of a light and summery-inspired salad that I enjoy at home.

It feels special, tastes incredible, is loaded with nutrition and takes next to no time or skill.

Once summer ends, swap out the seasonal fruit for something else. Grapes, berries or even melon would all work in place of the stone fruit.
