peach and tomato salad

Peaches and tomatoes are a bit of an unlikely combination that I found on peach tomato saladBittman’s The Minimalist, but I was intrigued, and both fruits are looking great at the Madison Farmers’ Market. I was so impressed that I will be eating it every week for the rest of the season. This salad is sweet and bright, and just a bit spicy. You can vary the proportions, but I thought it was excellent the way we made it. We had it alongside leftover banh mi sandwiches, and they complimented each other well. This made about 5 servings.

3 large, ripe peaches
3 large, ripe tomatoes
1/3 of a large red onion, sliced thinly
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
hot red pepper flakes, to taste
salt and black pepper, to taste
juice of 1 small lime
1 tb extra virgin olive oil

1. Slice the fruits to desired size. Add the onion, cilantro, pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.

2. Toss with the olive oil and lime juice.

    Ooh, I’m excited to try this one – I’m going to make it tonight! Sounds like it might be good with a little bit of feta or goat cheese, too.
