First, thank you all SO much for your Italy foodie suggestions, the other day! They are all so so helpful. I’m writing this from the terrace of our small, yet very awesome, airbnb apartment in Rome. It’s picturesque, I’m not going to lie. What’s less idyllic is this jet lag. I always expect it to get easier, but every trip it seems to hurt a little more… of course, nothing I’m sure a little gelato won’t fix.
Before we head out for the day, I wanted to share this simple peach salad I made a few weeks ago with the sweetest Texas peaches & plums that I hauled home from the farmers market.
This is exactly the not-recipe recipe that I like to make with perfect peaches. While I absolutely love recipes like this grilled peach salad (it’s one of our most popular ones too), there’s something about those first summer peaches that are so special to me and I just want to savor them for the sweet little gems that they are.
This is the perfect salad for the start of a summery Sunday meal. Although – oops – I’ve lost all sense of day & time, so I guess this is a Monday salad.
There are no measurements here – just use up the peaches you’ve got and eyeball the rest. Ciao!
