My food blog & cookbook in progress

Just peachy!

One of my favorite things about summer around the Great Lakes of North America are fresh tree ripened peaches. Or for that matter not fully ripe yet. Here’s a recipe that was invented using a peaches and sundry leftovers in the fridge especially tahini.

Slice peaches, season lightly with salt and pepper and mix together with ribbons of mint and some flavorful vegetable that delivers a different texture: this time around there was come nice crisp fresh celery about and so sliced a few stalks  crosswise and tossed with the peaches. Also stirred in a half handful of slivered toasted almonds. The first layer of dressing was a combination of tahini (thanks to an overzealous host ordering-in Middle Eastern food) and the juice of an orange. A second layer (although in a pinch it could be stirred into the dressing) was that of a flavored virgin olive oil.
