Summer Peach Salad

This is one of my favorite summer fruit salads with a honey lemon dressing! It’s an incredibly refreshing, must-have side dish that’s made with a beautiful blend of delicious peaches, nectarines blueberries, blackberries, cherries, and plums. You can certainly enjoy the peach salad as is, but a sweet and tangy dressing will elevate the taste even further. This is sure to be a crowd favorite!

Servings 8


  • 3 cups peaches
  • 2 cups nectarines
  • 1 cup plums
  • 1 cup apricots
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 1/2 cups cherries

Honey Lemon Dressing

  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • pinch of salt


  • Prepare all fruit by slicing thinly. Be sure to remove pits from cherries. 
  • In a large mixing bowl add all fruit.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, honey, salt, and thyme until well combined. 
  • Pour dressing over fruit and gently mix until fruit is coated. Enjoy right away or chill for 1 hour in the refrigerator before serving.


  • Feel free to use any combination of fresh fruit – you can keep it super simple with just one or two, or use a few different types. 
  • If you don't like (or don't have) any fresh thyme, feel free to sub with mint or basil. 
  • Honey – I don’t recommend substitutions for this unless there’s an allergy (if so I’d maybe try maple syrup or brown rice syrup).
  • You can substitute the lemon juice with lime juice or orange juice for a milder tartness.
