WFMW: Summer Salad

Back when I was regular with my blogging I participated in a blog carnival called, "Works for Me Wednesday." Everyone would head over to Kristen's blog, We Are That Family, and post a handy tip or recipe. Since I'm home from school now I was excited about sharing a new recipe that I made for the first time yesterday. (And I made a double batch today!) It seems like a bit of an odd combination, but I promise that if you like tomatoes and peaches you will be wowed!

This would be a lovely salad at your Canada Day or July 4th picnic!

Summer Peach and Tomato Salad
(Based on a similar recipe in Cooking Light)

3 ripe (not overripe) peaches, chopped into bite size pieces
3 ripe tomatoes, chopped into bite size pieces
1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion (almost a sliver size piece)
2 T white wine vinegar
1 T olive oil
2 t honey
1/2 t kosher salt
1/8 t black pepper (or more)
dried basil to taste
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled

Place all the ingredients in a bowl and gently toss. Eat and enjoy! I'm sure this recipe is even better the next day, but so far I haven't had any left over to try the next day!

Been Missing You!

So, things have been very busy here... as you can imagine.

But, now it is summer. We are all done with school and we are ready for some summer fun. Aaron completed 4th grade. Dave completed 2nd grade. Sam completed Kindergarten. I completed another year of Preschool. :)

I look forward to updating you with our summer adventures and our plans for the upcoming school year. There are going to be some changes for the next school year, but before I get into all that I want to have a little summer fun.
