A quintessential summer dish; beautifully ripe tomatoes and sweet, juicy peaches are musts for this salad.
Use variously colored heirloom tomatoes for an outrageous presentation.
3 large ripe tomatoes, cored, peeled if you like, and thickly sliced
3 large ripe peaches, pitted, peeled if you like, and cut similarly to the tomato slices
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces fresh goat or blue cheese, crumbled, or chopped fresh basil leaves
Extra virgin olive oil, as needed
Alternately stack the tomato and peach slices on a large plate or platter, sprinkling each layer with a tiny bit of salt and pepper. Crumble the goat cheese over the top and drizzle with olive oil.
