GREEN PEACH SALAD

Green Peach Salad

Finding a perfectly ripe peach can be a challenge in a modern grocery store. Hard as rocks, almost impossible to slice, these round objects that pass for peaches are often too green to eat. But wait! Food 52’s Genius Recipes has a groundbreaking green peach salad recipe that makes a virtue of even the hardest, most unappealing peaches. It couldn’t be easier, with a half dozen ingredients (including peaches) which you probably already have in your kitchen. Let the salad get nice and cold before serving, but prep and serve the same day; the peaches will start to get mushy overnight.
