It seems like everyone was making some version of a peach and tomato salad this summer, but I decided to really add some flare. This combination may seem odd at first, but peaches bring out the sweetness in tomatoes and pair perfectly with crunchy cucumbers and then balances out with fresh basil. Talk about the perfect salad for a picnic or cookout. It's the weekend, so share this recipe with your favorite people. You deserve it!
