I’m a regular at Saffron and Honey and am often inspired by her mouth-watering recipes. Some time ago she had a post on green tomato and peach salad that fit perfectly with my current cravings for fruits and greens. I promised her it would go on my to-do-list, but it took me longer than expected (things are always postponed these days…). However, when I suddenly decided to make it I didn’t have my phone or computer nearby and just had to whip something together from memory. I couldn’t find green tomatoes that week, so they were red. But I did find some perfect peaches. Husband had left for work, so I only made enough for me and Son (and although he has to taste he didn’t really help me clear the platter). Here’s what I put in:
- one peach (skin removed)
- one tomato
- half an avocado
- a few basil leaves
- olive oil and sea salt
The salad was a complete explosion on the taste bud. So fresh, sweet, delicious and full of taste that I’m telling you: You have to try this! Slice everything as thin as you can and drizzle or sprinkle the last two ingredients on top. You won’t be disappointed!
Thank you Saffron and Honey for your inspiration!
Anne, that looks simply wonderful! I love the colors, so gorgeous. What a wonderful summer treat.
Thank YOU for the inspiration! 🙂 Maybe a good thing I didn’t find the green tomatoes 🙂
Yumm this will be on the menu this weekend…I’m off to the orchard….
Let me know if you liked it! 🙂
Looks wonderful. And sounds delicious. Will have to try this one too.
And we did try it! It was delicious. We used perfectly ripe deep red, almost purple, heritage tomatoes. Otherwise we followed the recipe, more or less doubled.
Next time I think we might add a soft fresh mozzarella, or bocconcini cheese.
Here are some pictures:
Thanks for posting this great recipe 🙂
