Tomato Cucumber Peach Salad Recipe With Feta & Quick Pickled Shallots by Donna John


Tomato Cucumber Peach Salad Recipe With Feta & Quick Pickled Shallots

This tomato, cucumber and peach salad recipe with feta and quick pickled shallots spoke to me on all levels. Fresh, healthy ingredients – and ingredients I love – all combined into one beautiful, healthy, colorful salad? Count me in.

Several of my friends (and millions of people worldwide!) are enjoying the health benefits of the Mediterranean Diet. I'm trying to incorporate Mediterranean ingredients and recipes into my diet more, too. This healthy fruit and vegetable salad is full of wonderful, seasonal, farm-to-table ingredients.

Here is your shopping list for this Mediterranean salad: shallots, red wine vinegar, heirloom tomatoes, fresh peaches, English cucumber, fresh herbs, feta cheese, olive oil and honey. The sliced shallots sit in red wine vinegar for a quick pickling as you prepare the other ingredients. Toss everything together and look at that beautiful salad you created! Not only that, the flavors all complement each other. It's delicious!

Serve this tomato cucumber salad as a side dish with dinner or as a light lunch. I served mine with peach bourbon grilled pork chops and roasted carrots.

Recipe Notes

  • You could use white wine vinegar instead of red wine vinegar.
  • I removed some of the seeds from the tomatoes before adding them to the salad.
  • Use a combination of whatever fresh herbs you like. I used mint, parsley, cilantro, basil and chives.
  • I used a red and yellow heirloom tomato. If you can't find heirloom tomatoes, use regular tomatoes.
  • To make this a heartier salad and add even more nutrition, add some cooked quinoa or your favorite grain.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the sliced shallots into a small bowl. Add the red wine vinegar and stir. Let the shallots sit while you prepare the rest of the salad.
  2. Put the sliced tomatoes, peaches and cucumber into a bowl.
  3. Add the chopped herbs and feta cheese.
  4. Stir the olive oil and honey into the shallots. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour the shallots and liquid over the salad.
  6. Gently toss to coat. Add more salt and pepper, if needed.
