Peach s alad

I could eat peaches in just about every incarnation. Fresh peaches with cream, peach muffins — you name it and I will eat it. Something else I love and eat with abandon is blue cheese. So this "salad" is a celebration of both those flavors and how well they work together. It is best served as a sweet snack or as a semi-healthy topping or garnish for a dessert. No matter how much I make, there never seems to be enough!

Ingredients

  • 2 peaches, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon of Port wine, or to taste
  • Handful of crumbled blue cheese, or to taste
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the peaches and Port wine. Let the mixture sit and combine. Meanwhile, crumble the blue cheese into small pieces (it's a strong flavor, so breaking the cheese up will avoid a too intense bite) and add to the peach mixture. Fold all components together.

Just before serving, add your slivered almonds on top and give it a quick mix.

Peach Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Peach Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
