Cucumber Peach Salad
Cucumber Peach Salad
This summer wave of high and intense heat in the Carolina’s is no joke. Granted it’s not nearly as hot as Anaheim, California or as dry as the humidity of San Antonio, Texas. However, it is toasty enough to crave a cool crisp afternoon bite of some refreshing salad. Particularly, Cucumber Peach Salad, which is loaded down with red, green, white and yellow fruits and veggies. This salad is super light, crunchy with a hint of creaminess and absolutely delicious. Simply take a few minutes out of your day by storing these fruits and veggies in the fridge (so they can be cold) or by prepping this salad to enjoying it later.
Veggies In Cucumber Salad
I’m a lover of veggies, so with that in mind, I am always striving to add more veggies to any recipe that I can. Veggies in Cucumber Salad can really be a matter of personal preference. However, in this particular salad I wanted tons of bright summer colors, that complemented each other perfectly in taste, texture and appearance. I opted to use 2 different types of tomatoes (orange and red) along with 2 different color peaches (white and yellow). I also tossed in 3 very different green veggies, fruit, and herb. This simple combination, makes for a perfect lunch or dinner.
Why Add Peaches In Cucumber Salad
In the great state of North Carolina, peaches are only in season for the month of July for this particular year. Nonetheless, as I roamed around the farmers market on Thursday, the sweet ripe smell of Carolina peaches oozed into my senses. Without thinking I purchased them, but I had no idea what I was going to make with them. 🙂 However to my surprise ;), my daughter and son had slaughtered all the peaches except for 3 in just under 2 days. So ,with loads of crispy cucumbers calling my name, I felt inspired to add a bit of softness and sweetness to this crunchy salad!!
Alright my friends, I know that you will enjoy this amazing salad, like I did. There is tons of healthy fats, vitamins and minerals with every bite. If you want to add some heat to this salad, just crank it up with some jalapeño pepper. This salad isn’t boring nor bland, so cater it to whatever veggies you have on hand!! 🙂 Enjoy Cucumber Peach Salad!!
