Summer Salad (Peaches, Cucumbers, Tomato, & Basil)

Jul 18, 2022 | Recipe, Salad

(Fresh Peaches, Cucumbers, Tomatoes, & Basil)

This easy summer salad highlights fresh sweet peaches, crisp crunchy cucumbers, and cherry tomatoes. More Than Olives Basil Olive Oil, fresh chives, and basil bring a wonderful herb element to the salad.  

Serves 4

Ingredients:

Directions:
Gently wash and dry the peaches. Cut each peach in half and remove the pit, then cut the halves into slices. Cut each slice into large cubes. 

Cut the tips off each end of the cucumber and cut it in half lengthwise. Slice each half into ¼” slices, roughly. You can leave them like this or cut each slice in half again. The diameter of this kind of cucumber often varies and will determine how you want to cut them. 

Wash the tomatoes and cut each cherry tomato in half. 

To create the salad, begin with a large bowl. Add the More Than Olives Basil Olive Oil and More Than Olives White Balsamic Vinegar along with the salt and pepper.  Give the ingredients a brisk whisk. Taste and adjust seasonings to your taste. 

Add into the dressing the peaches, cucumbers, and tomatoes. Gently stir to coat. Let them marinate for 30 minutes at room temperature. Place in the refrigerator if you are serving later. 

When you are ready to serve, give the salad another gentle stir. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the salad to a serving dish or individual bowls. Top with chives and basil and a light drizzle of the remaining dressing from the bowl.  Serve immediately & Enjoy! 

Additions: 
If you want to further enhance this salad, try adding 1 cup of baby arugula or baby spinach. 

Or add a sprinkle of cheese on top, such as cubed fresh mozzarella, crumbled goat, feta or gorgonzola cheese, or torn pieces of burrata.


More Than Olives

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
