Heirloom Tomato and Summer Peach Salad

July 26, 2010

Author Notes: This one is so simple, so in season, there’s no reason not to try it! I’ll make it for a snack or a simple dish to take with me to BBQs. One taste of this mix and everyone will be asking for the recipe! It’s great with a fresh whole wheat bread, freshly baked with a hard crust and soft center….. it's what I like to call Happy Belly Food! Maya E Nahra
