This Tomato Peach Salad features summer tomatoes and peaches at their peak juiciness and sweetness. There’s nothing more delicious than freshly picked tomatoes and peaches in the summertime. Each Saturday, I look forward to our local farmer’s market. Although this year we have limited vendors and we can’t handpick our own fruits and vegetables, I feel incredibly grateful that our local farmers are offering their best produce each weekend.
Tomato Peach Salad

The last four months, I’ve been ordering our groceries from a wholesaler. The advantage of doing this is that I have access to restaurant quality products. Recently, I bought a restaurant meal kit from a Michelin star restaurant in New York City. The kit included a delicious tomato peach salad with feta cheese and purple basil. The tomatoes and peaches were perfectly ripe.

This salad was comprised of both fresh, raw tomatoes and peaches, as well as some demi-sec (semi-dried) tomatoes and peaches that had been marinated in a vinaigrette.

I recreated my own version of this simple, but incredibly delicious salad today. The key is to use farm fresh ripe tomatoes and peaches, the finest extra virgin olive oil, aged sherry or balsamic vinegar you can find, and fresh basil and mint leaves. I used a little of both aged sherry and aged balsamic vinegar. A pinch of sugar accentuates the sweetness of the tomatoes and peaches, but is completely optional.

This summer, I have been growing a few heirloom tomato plants and lots of fresh herbs, which have been such a gift in the kitchen. All I have to do is walk out to my kitchen patio and harvest whatever I need. There’s nothing fresher!
