Author Notes: I love the combination of peaches with tomatoes. This salad compliments grilled fish nicely. cucinettaNYC

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 cups assorted heirloom tomatoes: black, brandywine, zebra and golden nugget - you want a variety of color and shapes
  • 2 ripe peaches, halved, pitted and sliced
  • 1/2 medium white onion, diced
  • fruity olive oil, to drizzle
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 large basil leaves, torn

Directions

  1. Cut tomatoes into chunks - you can halve the smaller cherry ones - and place in bowl.
  2. Add peaches and onions to tomatoes and let the ingredients rest so that the flavors meld, but no longer than 15 minutes.
  3. Drizzle with good fruity olive oil, salt and pepper and sprinkle torn basil leaves.

I love this sweet/savory combo. I might add a little fresh goat cheese I just picked up too. Love the colors!

Yes, not only is it tasty but it is visually appealing too. Goat cheese would add a nice creaminess to it - will give it a try!

Am thinking of grilling a fish this weekend and this will be dynamite with it.

I just availed myself of the bounty of produce at my local farmer's market. We made this for dinner tonight. It was absolute heaven. Thank you for sharing this with us.
