Your unexpectedly best dish this summer

I threw together a new salad last night and the night before that just rocked - something about was just magical. Arugula, toasted pine nuts, salt and pepper, thinly sliced red onion rings, sliced nectarine, fresh mozzarella, held together with a squirt of lemon juice and olive oil. A perfect combination for a hot summer night - salty, sweet, spicy, sour, juicy, rich and crunchy.

What have you made this summer that was a surprise hit? Have you stumbled onto any new combination that you love? What do you attribute the success of the dish to?
