All in for Apricots

We’re approaching peak season for apricots, the sweet, tart cousin to plums with a myriad of health benefits. Apricots are rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E and niacin, and a great source of fiber - a boost for bone and heart health, as well as an assist for the digestive tract.

Look for orange-yellow to orange fruit (no white spots), and be careful not to bruise them. They can be kept in the refrigerator for up to a week. 

Apricots are delicious on their own, or add to a salad like this:


  • 2 tbsps balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsps minced shallot
  • 3 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup arugula
  • ¼ cup kale
  • 1 large fennel bulb thinly sliced
  • 6 large apricots, pitted and sliced
  • ¼ cup walnuts, halved


  1. Mix vinegar and shallots in medium bowl. Whisk in oil. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Mix arugula, kale and apricots in a salad bowl. Add dressing and toss. Sprinkle walnuts on top.
