Mint and nectarines pair perfectly together and this salad showcased both of these ingredients wonderfully. It was fresh and sweet, perfect for lunch for a hot summer day.

2 stalks kale, finely sliced
1/4 red onion, finely sliced
3 nectarines, pit removed and sliced
2 tablespoons mint, sliced plus one sprig for garnish
