WHO DOES NOT LOVE PEACHES? Especially in summer? Just everyone in the world.

Peaches are my obsession. I would eat 24850239845 a day if I could. The taste of a peach is just perfection. Especially one in the summer.

The Nanz has always said to get FREESTONE PEACHES, specifically though, heard of them?

Basically they “have fruit that falls right off the pit. These peaches are perfect for eating, canning, and freezing. You just slice the peach down the middle, and pull it right off the pit. They’re available Mid-June to Mid-August.”

HELLO MID-ISH AUGUST.

Anyway, I teamed up with the lovely Lindsay of Week Night Bite to create this recipe. Lindsay & I did sort of a recipe swap here. She made TSC Sangria. Go check out her blog, especially if you could use a good porch drink.

NOW, if you’re looking for a salad to go with that sangria, lucky you:

Summer Peach and Tomato Caprese

3 ripe peaches or nectarines, pitted

* can we please just go ahead & note that I’m kind of OBSESSED with these to-go dressing containers? They’re just right for the office. If you need some Kardashian to-go salad containers, check these out.

I need to get on here & really write…I feel like I’ve been distant & I have a lot to share! In the next two weeks I will get my ass in front of a computer to let you guys in on what’s been up. In the meantime, this peach salad will hold you over.

Trust me, I made it 3 nights in a row. It really is the most refreshing, ideal summer salad.

My girlfriend, Erica is over so we’re going to drink sparkling wine & eat salmon sushi rolls. Currently trying to plan a very NON-PENIS STRAW bachelorette party. Please keep the wedding tips coming. They’re really saving my life.

Happy Thursday, lauryn x
