It's summertime where big, fat juicy tomatoes and peaches are in abundance. After coming back from my farm visit with fresh peaches and Jersey tomatoes, I created this bright summer salad that helps beat the heat.
On my commute back to NY from visiting the Jersey farm, some of my peaches got bruised in transport. With these bruised peaches, I peeled and pitted them and pureed them in the blender. This is going to be my base for smoothies this week and I used a few tablespoons to make the dressing for this bright summer salad.
Peach & Tomato Salad(click here for printable recipe)
6 yellow/orange plum tomatoes, chopped
2 red plum tomatoes, chopped
4 peaches, chopped
8 oz. fresh mozzarella, chopped
4 tablespoons peach puree
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Combine tomatoes, peaches and mozzarella and mix in a bowl.
In another small bowl, combine peach puree, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Whisk together. While continuing to whisk, slowly incorporate olive oil, a little at a time.
Add dressing to fruit and cheese and toss well.
Sweet and bright, this salad hits the spot on a hot summer evening!
