It’s hot here! An unrelenting 90+ degrees every day. Most days I’m not bothered by the temperature because I go from my air-conditioned home to my air-conditioned car to wherever else I’m going that’s air-conditioned too. Climate control…you gotta love it! But, some days, it’s in-and-out, schlepping from here to there…and the heat gets me. It knocks me out and, SURPRISE, it even lessens my appetite.
Today was one of those days. By the time I got to the market in the late afternoon, I knew I didn’t feel like cooking so I grabbed a peach and a beautifully ripened tomato and a few other things that wound up forming a perfectly paired dinner.
Tomato + Peach Salad was dressed with extra virgin olive oil,
fresh lemon juice, a drizzle of honey and lots of black pepper!
It paired perfectly with toasted ciabatta smeared with a truffle mousse made from chicken, pork and turkey livers.
And a chilled Pinot Grigio!
Light and tasty…a perfect summer meal!
NOTE: I was reminded where I first saw the combo of peaches + tomatoes. It was on Sam’s My Carolina Kitchen. She dressed her salad with a curry-orange vinaigrette. Check it out!
