I honestly thought the flavor combination of this dish might turn out a little weird--mint with tomatoes, beets, and peaches? But it's delicious. The crumbled goat cheese adds just the right tang. I think next time I will add a bit more mint, but otherwise it's a great dish.
I used unpeeled farmers market peaches, golden beets and heirloom tomatoes, plus thyme from my own garden. It looked absolutely gorgeous on the platter and was delicious with simple grilled chicken that I had marinated in lime juice and olive oil. What a great way to savor the end of summer!
I guess I'm just not enough of a fan of beets to love this recipe. If you love beets then maybe you'll love this like the other reviewers do.
I notice the recipe calls for peeled peaches. And the gorgeous photo shows unpeeled peaches. Does any one have some opinion on which is better to eat and why? Signed Curious in Boston
Very good. The beets should be made a day ahead to save time. I put them in the oven while I was making dinner the night before. I used red beets.
Beautiful and so delicious! A great way to highlight summer's fresh produce. I used red beets, as golden beets were not available, and they worked just fine.
Absolutely delicious. A beautiful presentation as well. Who would have thought this combination would be so good. I drained a jar of sliced beets to simplify things and it was just great.
We made this with fresh Chilton County Peaches and mint from my garden, and it was fabulous!
