Summer is all about peaches, but I actually prefer the tangy sweetness of nectarines. They have all the juicy, sugary flavor you love – minus the peach fuzz.

Use them in salads, grilled fruit desserts, snack on them plain, or get a little sassy and try my Nectarine & Avocado Salsa (pictured below).
