Peaches are one of my all-time favourite summer fruits. We have here a peach, tomato, red onion, avocado, basil Panzanella salad topped with a crumbly local goat cheese. The dressing combined extra virgin olive oil mixed with Italian mango white balsamic vinegar, a drizzle of pomegranate reduction and some honey. Salt and pepper to taste. This salad was an explosion of colour, flavour and utilized ingredients that are seasonal. It is a delicious salad for lunch or dinner but keep in mind, it does not store well. The tomatoes and peaches become watery and the avocado discolours. So, make sure to eat this one up completely after serving, which shouldn’t be difficult because it’s delicious!
