This is a great summer salad when both tomatoes and peaches are in season. It has a nice balance between sweetness and acidity of the tomato and peach and the saltiness of the goat cheese.

This is a great summer salad when both tomatoes and peaches are in season. It has a nice balance between sweetness and acidity of the tomato and peach and the saltiness of the goat cheese. And it also gets the added layer of flavor from the spices in the marinade for the peaches. Use peaches that are not overripe; you want a little crunch and some acidity left in the peach for contrast. It is very important to serve this salad closer to room temperature to get the full flavor; tomatoes especially have a lot less flavor when cold.
