If you could capture summer in a bowl, it would be this nectarine salad. Pairing tomatoes and stone fruit creates a perfect balance of acidity and sweetness that can’t really be beat, and mint takes it over the top. For best appearance, dress just before serving; for deeper flavor, dress and toss lightly ahead of time.
