Peach and Mint Salad



Peaches are now in season and I particularly like the ones with the white flesh that are firm and great for salads. The slight tartness from the semi ripe peach with the crunch from them makes this salad really lovely to eat and it's the perfect accompaniment with a platter of freshly baked bread and cheeses.

  10. I adore peaches, and I love mint & lime together too - this seems like a match made in Heaven! (Although, as I don't eat honey, I'd use agave nectar - maple syrup would be too strong, I think.)

    It's almost a nojito salad! I'm definitely going to be making this one. :-)
