tomato, peach and basil salad

Recipe by Emma Frisch

The beauty of this recipe is its flexibility. It’s best to use heirloom or big beefy tomatoes for this dish, but really, any tomatoes would do and it would be cute as a button and sweet as can be with cherry toms too! That’s what the Aussies call them. I also love to interchange the basil with mint or a bit of both!

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • Fresh Lemon Juice – 3 tablespoons
  • Peaches – 3, thinly sliced
  • Tomatoes – 2, thinly sliced (remember that tomatoes are actually a fruit)
  • Fresh basil – 1 cup leaves, loosely packed
  • Salt – 1 teaspoon
  • Freshly ground black pepper – To taste

Instructions

  1. Put peaches and tomatoes in a large bowl, stir in lemon juice to coat.
  2. Tear the basil with your hands and add to the salad with the salt and pepper. Toss.
  3. Serve immediately or marinate (it gets delicious with age!).
