Heirloom Tomato & Peach Salad

I LOVE summer!!! When it comes to fresh produce, no other season compares!!! The bright colors of fruits & veggies, the fragrant smell of fresh herbs, and abundance of local farmers markets, can entice anyone…..

I fell victim this weekend when I made a trip to Pepper Place Farmer’s Market located in Birmingham …. I came home with arms loaded!

One dish I created from my farmers market trip was inspired by MyRecipes.com. This recipe is quick, easy, and full of summer flavors!!!

Heirloom Tomato & Peach Salad:
Serves 4
Salad Ingredients:
3-4 Heirloom Tomatoes (a variety of colors add dimension)
3-5 Small Tomatoes (green zebras, red zebras, and yellow tomatoes)
Handful of Cherry Tomatoes
2 Peaches, Diced
1 Red Onion Diced
1 Large Avocado, Diced
Sea Salt
Ground Black Pepper
1 cup Crumbled Feta Cheese
Handful of Purple Basil, Shredded
Salad Dressing:
1.5 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Sherry Vinegar
Salt
Ground Black Pepper
2 teaspoon Honey

Mix first 5 ingredients in a bowl. Season with sea salt and ground black pepper. Mix EVOO, sherry vinegar, sea salt, black pepper, and honey in a bowl or shake in a small mason jar. Pour over tomato mixture. Gently fold in avocado, Basil, and crumbled feta cheese.

Serve as a side with sandwiches or grilled burgers. This salad also pairs great with grilled chicken, fish or pork, or as the main entree along side pecorino & pesto crostini!
