Sweet Peaches, Red Onion with Shredded Basil Salad

1 Comment 13 August 2012

 

This fresh summer salad couldn’t be easier. We sliced the peaches pencil thin, and let them marinate in the equally sliced thin red onion slivers. The slivered basil was last to be sprinkled on top right before serving. If serving with a dairy meal, you can crumble feta or goat these on top, and if serving with a meat meat, you can choose to place sliced grilled chicken as a side. We couldn’t stop eating this salad given the low fat and low calorie bonus! Inspired by MarthaStewart.com.

Sweet and Savory Summer Salad Ingredients:

  • 3 peaches, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 1/4 red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil (leaves torn if large)
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Directions:

  1. Toss peaches with red onion, basil, lemon juice, salt, and some pepper. Drizzle with olive oil.

My Window Herb Garden

No Comments 23 April 2010

My apartment has south facing windows, which makes it SO HOT and blindingly bright. Sometimes I have to wear sunglasses indoors, and the wall of mirrors doesnt help matters! So I figured I might as well take advantage of living in a greenhouse and grow some herbs.

I’ve been collecting some potted herbs for the past few days. I bought some at the farmer’s market, some at Home Depot, and some more at my local florist. I was looking for the perfect pot to replant them in so I could leave them on my window sill and have fresh herbs everyday. The florist had her herbs in these glass square bowls, and she told me that with a few stones below the soil for drainage, the herbs would be just fine in one of those.

Im growing: Basil, Mint, Oregano, and Thyme. I have Rosemary growing in a separate pot because it has different watering needs. I put the Oregano and Mint at the edges because they tend to flop sideways, while the Basil and Thyme will stay more upright. For instructions on a fool-proof herb garden go HERE.

I cant wait to make dinner tonight!
