August breakfast salad

One large fresh tomato, dead ripe

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.

This recipe appears in Yiddish here
דער רעצעפּט געפֿינט זיך אױף ייִדיש דאָ

And here is Pablo Neruda's Ode to a Tomato
