Recipe: Hot Weather Salad

peaches, tomatoes, corn, basil, fresh, produce, low fat, in season

It is 93º here. We keep breaking records every day and it's not supposed let up anytime soon. I don't even cook anymore. Lean Cusines are so much easier when moving makes you melt. But I was in desperate need of some fresh fruit and veg, so I whipped up this super easy, heat-free summer salad.

I discovered the mix in Palm Springs and have developed my own version. It's pretty free-style and takes advantage of summer's most delicious produce.

Ingredients:
1-2 peaches
2 ears of corn
2 ripe tomatoes
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh Basil
1/2 cup fat-free Feta Cheese
Tablespoon grated Parmesan
Olive Oil & Balsamic
Salt & Pepper

Directions:
In no particular order, slice the peaches, chop the tomatoes, and cut the corn of the cob. Toss in a bowl with basil, a teaspoon or two of olive oil, two tablespoons vinegar, and the cheeses. Add salt and pepper to taste. Eat all of it.

Mmm this sounds fabulous! I saw the cheese in the pictures on google+ and immediately clicked over, haha. i've never had a salad with peaches, so I'm definitely intrigued. I've been getting into a salad rut lately so this has come at the best time :)
