I can't seem to stop writing about peaches and tomatoes, can I? Perhaps that is because they are so flavorful and wonderful at the moment. Perhaps that is due to the large quantities of the two fruits I have been consuming. Either way, it is always nice to incorporate in a new flavor or two to change things up.
Well, A Couple Cooks recently posted a delicious recipe for an heirloom tomato and peach salad! Very summery - refreshing and nourishing. The photo gracing the blog emphasizes how the deep red of the tomatoes contrasts nicely with the vibrant yellow flesh of the peaches and makes the green of the mint pop (and the couple themselves make a pair of beautiful bloggers!)
Though a really simple and quick recipe, I made a few changes to suit my mood and herbs on-hand:
1 heirloom tomato
1 large peach
3-4 leaves basil
dash of white balsamic vinegar
pinch of fleur de sel or sea salt
Five days more to Portland!
