A Summer Salad

This Summer Salad is quick and easy to make with few ingredients and perfect to take along for a Labor Day picnic.  It's a basic Peach and Tomato Salad.  Peaches and tomatoes do present an unusual combination but they are surprisingly tasty mixed together.

Fresh summer peaches are still available at grocery stores and Farmers Markets.  At my last visit to the market, I picked up juicy freestone peaches, plump tomatoes, and firm cucumbers.

To make the salad, I washed and cut two tomatoes and two peaches into wedges which came out to be equal parts of each fruit.

To add a third ingredient and a little bit of greenery, I peeled and seeded a cucumber and cut it up into half moons and added them into the fruity mix.

If European or Canadian cucumbers are used, leave the skin and seeds--just cut 'em any way you want.

For a dressing, I mixed oil and vinegar together and added a little sugar, salt, and pepper to taste.

Have a Great Labor Day!
