Tomato and Peach Salad



This is my new favorite summer salad!




I was doubtful when I came across this recipe in Cooking Light:  peaches with tomatoes and red onion???  But then I told Bill (the peach and tomato lover in the house), about it, became intrigued and had to give it a go.



It’s amazing how the individual flavors of tomatoes, peaches and red onions ~ each taste delicious on its own ~ generate a uniquely different flavor when combined.


Acid and sweet balances perfectly with the tangy vinaigrette of red wine vinegar, lime juice and honey, coating the blend.




It’s a saporous combination that uses great flavors of summer and goes well with any grilled meat!



I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as we do!





Tomato and Peach Salad



Ingredients:



3 medium peaches, skinned, pitted and cut into thick wedges

3 medium red tomatoes, skinned and cut into large chunks

½ pint cherry tomatoes, halved

½ medium red onion, thinly slice



Dressing:



1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 teaspoon honey

2 tablespoons olive oil

¼ teaspoon sea salt

½ teaspoon seasoned pepper



Method:



In a large bow, combine the peaches, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, and red onion, and toss gently.

In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, lime juice and honey.

Slowly add the oil in a thin stream, whisking to emulsify,

Season with salt and pepper.

Add the dressing to the peach mixture and gently toss.

Serves 8





ENJOY!

  4. Great combination isn't it? I've been putting peaches and tomatoes together for a while now, but for some, it takes a taste or two to be convinced how great they are together.

  6. Awhile back there was a sale for peach salsa (with onions, peaches and toms). I wasn't sure but man alive, so flippin' good. Then later I got to try the same but with pineapple. Oh my gosh. So good.
