Heirloom Tomato and Peach Salad

Summer is starting to make us lazy. We’re doing everything we can to avoid cooking. In fact, we’re starting to avoid recipes altogether. Who wants to follow a recipe when you can throw together two or three fresh ingredients that taste amazing?

Our influx of garden tomatoes has us eating them for every meal, and I couldn’t imagine anything better!  Combining their acidity with a bit of sweet is a great compliment, and a wonderful way to use the peaches that are available at local markets. With a bit of balsamic vinegar and some fresh mint, the flavor combination was out of this world!

Heirloom Tomato and Peach Salad

What You Need
Fresh mint
Aged balsamic vinegar
Kosher salt


1 Wash the tomatoes and peaches, and cut each into slices. Chiffonade the mint. (You could remove the peach skin if you wanted, but we prefer leaving the skin on – plus, it’s less work!)

2  Arrange the tomato and peach slices in a lovely pattern on a plate. Sprinkle with mint and kosher salt, and drizzle with some balsamic vinegar.

      Haha, sounds like a good plan! It took me a long time to be able to eat fresh tomatoes – but trying little by little worked! I’m glad you have an open mind :)

    What a gorgeous combination!!! The colors are amazing together. I wouldn’t have thought of combining a sweet fruit with tomato, but now I couldnt think of anything more natural to go with a juicy red heirloom. Thanks also for educating me on the term “chiffonade.” I like cutting herbs that way, just didn’t know what to call it!

      Yes, the mint definitely made the dish! (I love mint, and don’t mind at all that it is taking over behind our garage! :) )

      Haha, thanks! I almost can’t believe these tomatoes – it’s the first time we’ve gotten anything like them! Do you have a garden?

          Oh wow – coconut trees?! That sounds pretty amazing from here in the middle of Indiana :) I’ll trade you some tomatoes for some coconut!

    Gorgeous salad! I love strawberries with tomatoes, but have never tried peaches and tomatoes. Some things are just meant to be tried. Sounds wonderful!
