If there were ever a glimmer of hope in the dog days of summer, stone fruits would be it. As you trudge through thick humidity and glaring sunlight, the thought of sweet peaches, pluots, nectarines, plums, even cherries -- yes, cherries are also a stone fruit -- waiting for you at home can inspire you to keep going.

More: Get your hands on stone fruit that will live up to your highest expectations.

Often, the best way to enjoy stone fruit is all by themselves, with the delicious juice dripping down your hands -- or in desserts. But we also put them to use in cocktails, salads, and other savory dishes. Check out some of our favorites below, and celebrate the summer harvest that the heat, however unbearable, brings.
