Heirloom Tomato & Peach Salad

Heat. Sweat. Water evaporating into thick cumulous clouds, pregnant with rain and thunder. Ripe tomatoes and succulent peaches. The smell of pollenating flowers. A wisp of basil and mint. Summer. This is what I live for.

An impromptu dinner and a garden full of herbs inspired this recipe. Plump heirloom tomatoes are sliced thick and dressed in olive oil and salt. Peaches, basil, and mint add a fragrant sweetness you can smell a mile away. This is kind of cooking was meant for summer: pick, cut, drizzle, sprinkle, devour. A true celebration of the summer's best.
