Peachy Tomato Salad with Honey Tarragon Dressing


Hi there– I’ve been reading some of my favorite bloggers talking about what’s coming out of their gardens this summer.  Fun to see your kale and summer squash and spicy peppers!  Our humble little garden (besides sprouting lots of weeds!) has produced tomatoes a plenty and nice healthy basil.

So tonight for dinner I wanted to use some of those tomatoes that are piling up in the kitchen!  And here’s the result.  Fresh and bright, colorful and so simple– fine for a summer supper.


4 ripe Roma tomatoes
1 large ripe peach
2 -3 tablespoons feta, crumbled
basil sprigs

3 tab. olive oil
2 tab. tarragon vinegar
1 tab. honey
salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

Cut the tomatoes into wedges and the peach in smallish chunks.  Spread them on a platter and crumble the feta over the top.  Sprinkle on the basil leaves.

For the dressing, combine the oil, vinegar, honey and salt & pepper in a container with a tight fitting lid.  Shake it until the ingredients combine thoroughly.  Pour it over the salad when you are ready to serve it up.

  1. Hi Rhonda – gorgeous colors here! I hope you summer is going well and you are not baking out there in sunny CA. We had 8 (!!) inches or rain here this week so now (that we have dried out) all the flowers and lawns are looking superb! -K

    • 8 inches!!! Sounds awesome Kat!! That’s what we love about the midwest. It’s so green. Last summer when we were in Wisconsin I talked to one of our daughter’s neighbors about her gorgeous front yard– and then this winter it was just empty and brown! But I’ll be it’s beautiful all over again by now! Happy Summer! hugs hugs!
