Seasonal Fruit Salad

One of my favorite things about summer is fruit salad. So simple, satisfying to my sweet tooth, and super refreshing. But one of the best things is how many different ways fruit salad can be made. I like to just go to the farmers market, grab whatever is around and just throw everything in a bowl. And now that sweet cherries are in full season, and the rest of the stone fruits have just started to appear, its time for one of my all time favorite fruit salads.

3 peaches, pitted and roughly chopped
3 red plums, pitted and roughly chopped
1 lb. sweet cherries (I generally use Bing or Rainer)
2 cups blackberries
approx 1/8 cup fresh mint chiffonade

Mix all ingredients together in a bog class or ceramic bowl and chill in the fridge for an hour or so. Bring to a vegan BBQ or eat as a delicious snack while lazily lounging in a hammock in the sun.
