Peach-Tomato Salad

This quick summer salad is really delicious and it's a great way to add more fruits and veggies to a meal.   It would also be very easy to scale up in order to make enough for more people.  Of course, it will be best if you get the most perfectly ripe, amazing peaches and tomatoes, but if you can't quite find those, just let the salad marinate in the vinegar for a little longer and it will still be very tasty.

Peach-Tomato Salad (adapted from The Family Kitchen, original recipe here)
Serves 1

1 medium peach, cut into medium slices
1 medium heirloom tomato, cored, cut into medium slices
A few very thin slices of red onion
1 tsp olive oil
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Toss the peach slices, tomato slices, and onion together in a bowl.  Drizzle over the oil and vinegar, toss again, and then top with salt and pepper to taste.


  1. The freshest and most delicious, yet simple enough to make in a minute.

  2. I would have never thought to do this! I bet it is really great.

  3. I love the beautiful, fresh flavors in this salad! I think it would be a nice pair with grilled chicken or fish...yum!

  4. Aw I miss summer. No more peaches around here, but I'll definitely have to remember this for next year :).

  5. that sounds like such a wonderful combination of flavors....I would never have come up with that on my own!!
