Tips & Tricks

And let's just take a moment to discuss how you should be picking peaches. In my book, it's the same way as an avocado. I tend to buy them a few days ahead of when I actually need them. That way I can buy them when they are still pretty hard, and then let ripen on my own kitchen counter. This way ensures that they aren't getting manhandled at the market by dozens of other humans! And you want to eat them just when they become a little soft with some give! Too much give means it's almost gone too far - so check on the regular and make this salad.

    I’ve been trying to remember a salad I made in Tuscany over 25 years ago. I used beautiful peaches and tomatoes, with basil and buffalo mozzarella. With something else……I couldn’t recall what the recipe missed until I read your version. The sliced red onions! Superb balance. Thanks so much.

    The strongest of 5 stars!! This was so dang delish. I’m making it again tomorrow! So flavorful and bold. I thought tomatoes and peaches? But WHAT A TREAT!
