Simplicity has never looked so beautiful. A stunning combination of skin-on peaches and heirloom tomatoes of various colors, sizes, and shapes creates a sweet-savory salad that pairs well with grilled pork.
1/4 cup thinly vertically sliced red onion
1/2 pound ripe peaches, pitted and cut into wedges
1/4 pound heirloom beefsteak tomatoes, cut into thick wedges
1/4 pound heirloom cherry or pear tomatoes, halved
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon honey
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled feta cheese
2 tablespoons small basil leaves or torn basil
How to Make It
Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl.
Combine vinegar, olive oil, honey, salt, and pepper in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle vinegar mixture over peach mixture; toss well to coat. Sprinkle with cheese and basil.
Excellent, light salad using the items I keep on hand. Used one peach and one nectarine. Did not have heirloom tomatoes, so I used our local, seasonal tomatoes. Also, used red wine vinegar in place of sherry vinegar. This great summer salad would go with just about anything coming off the grill.
Easy and wonderful when produce is so fresh! Very colorful dish; don't make too far in advance tomatoes get watery, although my peaches didn't turn even the next day. I substituted red wine vinegar for the sherry vinegar and it was fine; dressing very light. Wonderful mix of flavors!
I love this recipe and make it often. Has great flavor, and is simple. As a bonus, it has ingredients that I typically have on hand anyway, except the sherry vinegar. I don't have sherry vinegar, so have just been using balsamic, and it seems to work just fine.
This would get six stars if I could. I spent all of dinner smiling. And even my kids liked it. The key here is to follow the recipe exactly. There are not many ingredients, but you need the right proportions of tomatoes, basil, red onion. The dressing was not at all too sweet (I wonder if other reviewers misread teaspoon for tablespoon, because it is only 1 teaspoon of honey in the dressing). I did improvise on the heirloom tomatoes, I had two kinds of full-sized tomatoes and no cherry/pear tomatoes, but that didn't matter. Yum, yum, yum. Perfect for summer when the fruit and tomatoes are ripe and fantastic. I actually paired this with a simple summer omlette for dinner, so don't worry about finding a pork roast or anything.
