My friend Sarah told me about this delicious salad combination. I love how well these flavors complement each other, and it seems like they’re all in season at the same time.
We recently enjoyed this salad on a picnic. I put the dressing at the bottom of two pint-sized mason jars and the lettuce and basil at the top, using the peaches and tomatoes as a barrier to keep the greens from getting soggy. When it was time to eat, we just shook the jars and the salad was dressed and ready to eat.
And speaking of salad greens, here’s a helpful post about how to properly store leafy green vegetables and other produce. By following this method, your lettuce will last longer in the fridge. Another benefit is that when it’s time to make a salad, your lettuce is already clean so all you have to do is chop it.
- 1 tbs. balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbs. olive oil
- 1 tomato (⅓ lb.)
- 1 peach (⅓ lb.)
- 2 cups lettuce
- ½ cup basil leaves
- Stir together the balsamic vinegar and oil. Pour the dressing into two pint-sized mason jars.
- Chop the remaining ingredients.
- Place the chopped tomato and peach on top of the dressing. Stack the lettuce and basil at the top of the jar.
- Refrigerate until ready to eat. Shake the jar and serve immediately.
