Peach and Tomato Salad

I admit, peaches and tomatoes together sounded . . . well, it did not sound good the first time I heard of it. Evidently, though, peach and tomato salad is a classic summer combination in Old Dixie, at least according to Southern Living magazine. And I had some perfect summer peaches and tomatoes so I thought I’d give it a shot.

A spicy twist on peach and tomato salad. I make my dressing with lime juice and fresh ginger over ripe peaches and tomatoes

My version goes a little sweet and spicy by adding some fresh ginger, rather than just sweet and tart. If the amount of ginger scares you, try it with half a teaspoon first and taste. You can always grate some more on top if you want.

And if you’re a lucky duck with a buttload of fresh summer peaches, please make this peach ice cream while you’re at it!

    This is not a combo I would have ever considered Hilah, but it sounds good. Since i have a generous supply of both ingredients at the moment I will be giving it a try.
