Peach and Cucumber Salad #recipe @LucyBurdette

LUCY BURDETTE: You may remember if you read Monday's blog that I promised you peach recipes. The peaches are glorious this year--we want to eat them in everything!

This combination may sound a little strange--even my husband was suspicious. But we loved it so please don't hold back! The keys of course are that the veggies are fresh, the peach ripe, and the feta delish...


1 large Cucumber
1 large ripe Peach
8 or so leaves fresh Basil
1/2 smallish red onion 
Fresh feta crumbles, about 1/2 cup
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 abd1/2 tsp honey

Mix the honey with the vinegar in a small bowl. Slice the onion thinly and set this to soak in the honey and vinegar mixture. Do this ahead, even an hour, so the onion has time to soften. 

Slice the basil to ribbons and add that too.

Slice the cucumber into rounds.

Peel and cut the peach into nice slices.

Combine all the vegetables in a pretty bowl, sprinkle with basil and feta crumbles. That's it! It's delicious! We ate every bite...

And here's a link to easy grilled peaches (post Labor Day picnic?)

And this will take you to a blueberry coffee cake that is just as good if not better with peaches...

  1. Oh, Lucy. Too weird. Which means we have to try it and will probably love it!

  2. An unexpected combination.
    All of this could happily go on a bed of lettuces.
