Does Labor Day signal the end of summer? I’m not sure. I do know that peaches are fading in Arizona. It’s probably a good idea to freeze enough peaches to get through the winter. There’s nothing like defrosting a bit of summer sunshine in the middle of January or making a pitcher of peach margaritas! Must plan ahead!
When sweet summer peaches are at their peak – firm enough to chop into a salad and ripe enough to be sweet and juicy perfection – this easy cucumber salad packs a refreshing crunch.
It’s sturdy enough to keep for a few days in the fridge, is full of hydrating fruit + veggies and is versatile enough to serve alongside any meal of the day.
How to make Peach Cucumber Salad
Last weekend I popped over to the farmer’s market and a vendor was offering samples – chunks of cucumber and peaches. I grabbed a piece of both, made a little sandwich and decided they belonged together.
Along with a little cilantro and red pepper, this Peach Cucumber Salad highlights some of the best summer produce! Best of all, it’s as simple as chop and eat.
Step 1: Chop all ingredients.
Make sure your ingredients are fresh with good crunch!
Step 2: Combine in a large bowl. Enjoy!
