Peachy Brunch Salad

I'm participating in Let's Do Brunch! so make sure you click through to visit all the other posts!  The recipes are really wonderful.  Special thanks to our hostess!

This is one of the salads that I'm featuring in my new summertime cookbook.  It will be available soon, but I'm going to share this very easy recipe!

Peach & Tomato Salad

This composed salad couldn’t be much easier to make! In Southern Illinois, peaches come into season at the same time that there is a huge abundance of fresh tomatoes! Combining the two in a colorful salad just seems natural. The dressing is simple, too! Mix ¼ cup of white balsamic vinegar with ¼ cup of grapeseed oil and blend well. Add a sprinkle of sugar, a dash of salt and a grind of peppercorns!

Compose the salad of wedges of tomatoes and peaches with tender buds of your favorite lettuce variety. You can also just place them on a bed of lettuce … or use no lettuce at all! Add a few wedges of a nutty flavored medium texture cheese like Gruyere and drizzle lightly with the dressing. Beautiful, flavorful and easy!
