Summer Flavors: What Are Your Favorite Fruit Combos?

Strawberry-rhubarb...Raspberry-peach...Blackberry-plum... The possibilities for combining summer fruit in delicious desserts are truly endless. Do you have a favorite?

I've recently fallen in love with the raspberry-rhubarb combination, primarily thanks to a recipe for Rhubarb-Raspberry Crostata over on Lottie + Doof (there's a link to the recipe below). This combination had never occurred to me, superseded as it is by the mighty strawberry-rhubarb duo. If you like tart fruits, you'll love the depth the raspberry adds to the bright rhubarb flavor. good!

I'm also in the market for good combinations with blueberry. A pint of blueberries is just so dang expensive that I like to stretch it out by pairing it with another fruit. So far peaches are my favorite, especially if a little ginger is involved.

A few recipes to tempt your tastebuds:

Rhubarb and Raspberry Crostata from Lottie + Doof
Peach-Raspberry Pie from Martha Stewart
Nectarine and Plum Tartlets from Epicurious

What summer fruit recipes are you making, or looking forward to making, right now?
