Ingredients for Sweet Peach Salad Dressing
- peach: half of a large, ripe peach pitted. The riper it is, the sweeter it will be. No need to peel the peach, unless it has a fuzzy skin and you want to. The skin adds colour to the dressing.
- olive oil: extra virgin, of course
- lemon juice: or champagne vinegar, or white wine vinegar if you don't have the first two
- sea salt
An easy blender dressing
Blend all ingredients together in a blender until perfectly smooth. Then set aside to allow the flavours to blend and become the most fabulous summer salad dressing you could imagine.
Use a very ripe peach to add more flavour and natural sweetness.
Wondering how to ripen peaches quickly? If your peaches aren't ripe, you can speed things up by placing them in a paper bag. Roll the top closed and leave on the counter at room temperature. Check after 24 hours. It may take a day or two, depending on how ripe they were when you bought them.
Leave the skin on. There's no need to peel the peach, as the skin adds a beautiful colour to this dressing.
Go organic! Peaches are on the Dirty Dozen list, so you may wish to choose organic.
