Peaches, Basil & Red Onion Salad
There is nothing like peaches from the Niagara region at this time of year! As I was flicking through Martha Stewart's "Living" magazine, I came upon this recipe. Since Greg is allergic to the fungicides that are sprayed on fruit, he hasn't eaten a fresh peach in about 14 years. The acids in the salad dressing were enough to break down the fungicide so he could enjoy them!
PEACHES, BASIL & RED ONION SALAD
3 peaches, sliced 1/2" thick
1/4 of a red onion, sliced very thinly
1/3 cup freshly torn basil
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
1/2 tsp coarse salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
Toss the peaches with the onion and fresh basil.
Whisk together the lemon juice, salt and pepper, with the EVOO.
Drizzle over top the peaches and toss gently to coat.
