Bon appetit published a very similar recipe to this in the august 2013 issue. What do they say? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!!

The peaches and tomatoes are a heavenly and inspired combination. Amazing that a vinaigrette is so good with peaches.

This was truly amazing--way bigger than the sum of its parts. I used white peaches and tarragon vinegar (since that was what I had to hand). It was voted "best damn thing you made this summer" by my family.

I bet this is delicious. Having paired tomatoes with mango, the peach must be really good, too! Full of summer tastes.
