    I made this for my July 4th cookout and got rave reviews from my guest! I don't understand rating something before actually making it! It was wonderful. The super sweet peaches and the lemon dressing balanced each other perfectly. I don't care how they spelled peach - it was just delicious!

    pêche, pesche, peaches - a rose by any other name would still smell as sweet. No matter how it's spelled, it sounds great from this computer in the peach state, Georgia. I can't wait to try it!

    As a southerner living in New England (who can get her hands on decent southern peaches only a few precious weeks of summer) I LOVED THIS RECIPE! As it happened, our local raspberries were in season so I added those for more color and flavor. And with the fresh thyme right out of the garden, this is a GREAT recipe. I brought the unassembled but prepped ingredients to Tanglewood and it was a perfect summer lunch. Thank you!

    I find spelling gaffes annyoing as well, but I thought the salad was good. I used crispy, crumbled cappicola instead of prosciutto, and sliced up a whole peach for a single serving. The flavor contrast was delicious, and this is a good way to use homemade mozzarella. I would definitely make this again for a light lunch or serve this to company.

    Really Southern Living? Peche? You couldn't even fact check to see if Peche was the right word in Italian? Pesche would be the correct spelling. "Peche?" Not a word. Pesca is the singular Italian word for peach, and pesche is the plural, peaches. You'd think a magazine that's been around as long as you have would have a better fact check/copy department, but guess not.
