Peach and Tomato Salad

I’ve been wanting to try out this recipe ever since I saw it in Cooking Light earlier this summer. And it’s a keeper! We’re always overflowing in tomatoes and peaches in this season, and this dish is a fantastic use of both. I never thought to combine them before! Yum. It’s easy, no cooking involved, and healthy and delicious. Really, what more can you ask for? Definitely going to be a summertime staple in my kitchen. (Especially since I have newfound love for heirloom tomatoes; I still can’t believe I spent most of my life not liking them.)
