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


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


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


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



  1. Pam, This is the kind of salad that my better half would love... Me, not so much although I do like tomatoes and love fresh peaches. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  2. This is the second time today that I've seen a salad with peaches. I think the universe is trying to tell me something! Thanks for sharing.

  3. This is an interesting combination. I'm not sure I'm adventuresome enough to try it, though.:-)

  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.

  5. Your salad sounds terrific to me! I made a tomato salad with a peach vinaigrette last year that was outstanding!

  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.

  7. What a great salad! We have a peach tree and it's time to start picking all the peaches. My tomatoes are ripening and I grew onions too. We might try this recipe! :)

  8. Light and fresh..I like it ~ Thanks for sharing Pam ~

  9. Hi Pam ... This is a great dish , This is a must do salad for tomorrow dinner , grill chicken leg quarters , my dinner is complete . Thanks for sharing ;-D

  10. this is a fantastic way to feature fresh tomatoes (and peaches, for that matter!). love the whole thing. :)

  11. A great combination.. Simple n fresh

  12. I love mixing fruits and veggies! This salad is so summery Pam!

  13. A unique combo. This salad must taste heavenly.



  14. I can almost imagine how good the combination would be! A great summer cooling salad.

  15. It is such a god idea to pair peaches and tomato! I must try when peaches will be in season :)

  16. Who would have originally put this combination of ingredients together? I would never have thought of it. Looks so tasty and I can only imagine the flavors marrying together....Tons of flavor!!

  17. I've got to try this. I've got a big red onion sitting in my kitchen and the tomatoes are just right, and I love peaches. Thanks, Pam, for a great idea.

  18. I have never seen this..what a good combo!I just happen to have the ingredients on my counter!

  19. I have peaches and tomatoes every day for lunch - but never combined. Interesting idea.... And I have red onions from my garden....

  20. What a hoot. How could you know that for the last week I've been thinking about combining tomato with fruit in a salad.

  21. I would have been doubtful as well but I will take your word for it and try this out. It does sound interesting. Keep well Diane

  22. It's definitely a unique combo but it looks refreshing and delicious!

  23. That's a fantastic sounding salad! I must try it before the peaches disappear.

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.
