Tomato Peach and Goat Cheese Salad

Tomato Peach and Goat Cheese Salad is a summery salad filled with fresh produce and tons of flavor!

Tomato Peach and Goat Cheese Salad

It’s tomato and peach season, people, and I am here for it! I planted four tomato plants in my garden this year and, unlike my zucchini plants, they are producing! p.s. anyone know why my zucchini plant would be flowering but not producing? GRRR!

As a result, I’m looking for any and every tomato recipe that I can get my hand on. Luckily, I came up with this one early in the season and now have my go-to tomato salad. It’s not just any tomato salad, either. Oh no. This is Tomato Peach and Goat Cheese Salad. Praise the flavor Gods!

Tomato Peach and Goat Cheese Salad

Seriously, this salad is so simple but so full of flavor. The main flavor stars are the ripe juicy peaches, fresh tomatoes (you can really use any kind!), thinly sliced red onion, fresh basil (more ways to use your garden produce!), and goat cheese.

Let’s not forget about the dressing, either. Three simply ingredients: olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, and honey. I told you – SIMPLE!

You might be wondering about the white balsamic vinegar. Was that a typo? No, friend, it was not. I love using white balsamic vinegar, especially on salads that have fruit, as it’s a little bit lighter in flavor than balsamic vinegar, and also keeps it looking fresh and not so….brown.

I brought this salad to dinner at a friend’s house and it’s safe to say we all loved it. It is fresh, satisfying, and the perfect complement to grilled fish, chicken, or steaks.

Here’s my tip for serving this to kids. If anything, they will love the peach part. My kids go crazy over peaches, so I also try to sneak in some goat cheese on their slices, too. Second, Lars has never ever loved tomatoes. UNTIL! We grew them ourselves. Now, he gets so excited about picking the “red ones” and eating them straight off of the plant.

This showed me how important it is to get my kids involved in the process of growing, prepping, and cooking their own food. Obviously this is an ever-evolving process according to their abilities and safety, but now Lars exclaims “I love tomatoes now!” and I’ve never been prouder. So when it came to this salad, even though it was a little white lie that we grew all of the tomatoes in it, he ate them because he thought we did. That can just be our secret, right? Plus, once more of our green tomatoes turn red, it will actually be true!
