    What a great salad! DH and I both loved it, plus it was super fast and easy to make AND very healthy! DH was very skeptical, but the taste won him over. The only change I made was that I only had one lime, so I zested it first then added the juice; I think I got close to the flavor of 2 T. lime juice. The funny thing is that I never would have made this, but I just happened to have all the ingredients for it and nectarines that are on their last leg, so I gave it a shot. I'm so happy that I did! This will be a nice summer side dish. Thanks, ratherbeswimmin'! You never let me down!
