The combination of peaches and tomatoes has been rattling around in my head for a while. I’ve seen it a number of places, and it struck me as unusual and interesting. Now that we’ve hit tomato season, I decided to give it a try in a quick salad.
The result is wonderful and to me, really personifies great summer cooking. In season fruits and veggies are highlighted by using nothing more than a healthy dose of salt and pepper and a zip of a light vinaigrette. No fancy techniques or ingredients required.
Take my advice and try it this weekend for lunch. You won’t regret it. I promise
