August breakfast salad
Two or so fresh ripe peaches (so that the peaches are more or less equal in
volume to the tomato)
Scald and peel the tomato (required); remove the seeds.
Scald and peel the peaches (optional); remove the stones.
Cut the fruit over the serving bowl to catch all the heady perfumed juices.
Dress with a drizzle of olive oil and just a drop of balsamic vinegar.
Sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt. Serves two.
