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!
Looking for more ways to use fresh tomatoes or peaches?
- Fresh mint
- Aged balsamic vinegar
- Kosher salt
- 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!)
- 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.
