This recipe for Crunch Salad comes from Toronto’s Merryberry Cafe via my Ma, who quickly worked out this home version after her first lunchtime visit. She’s omitted the alfalfa sprouts and crispy bacon, kept the candied pecans, and nailed the bright sweet & sour tang of the orange honey mustard dressing. Even people who claim not to like salad will be converted to the ruffage cause by this extremely delicious. And, since stone fruit is beautifully in season here in Australia, now is the perfect time to test our theory that this is the most delicious salad. ever.

That salad looks delicious! I love stone fruit, but never do much with them other than just eating them, so I think that needs to go on my to-try list!
