Have you noticed peaches popping up in more and more salads lately? They seem to be jumping onto an increasing number of lunch and dinner menus, and we’re pumped about it. Sandwiches, green salads, grain salads: all made extra delicious by the presence of peaches.
Summer may be in the homestretch, but it sure feels like it’s going strong: after a few mild days, we’re jumping back into a heatwave—not that we’re all that unhappy about it. Packing in the heat before we’re permanently jacketed for the winter is just find by us. As we reel towards fall off of our busiest summer yet (wedding! travel! moving! general adulting!), we’re lucky to find a few spare minutes to cook up something quick.
So between our schedules and the heat—and let’s be honest, a summer’s worth of ice cream and s’mores and fruit pies—we’re living on a whole lot of salads these days. And while we still can, we’re tossing perfect September peaches into our bowls, too.
Here’s one of our favoritefavoritefavorite quick meals this time of year: hearty, healthy, and insanely delicious. The farro gives this salad great chew and nutty flavor, while the shishito peppers and scallions give it some bite. The salty feta, simple lemony vinaigrette, and fresh mint brighten things up. And all of these great things together: the perfect backdrop to the tastiest peaches you can get your mitts on.
Here’s to soaking in all the sunshine-twirling, window-down driving, sand-rolling, barefoot-grass walking, melty ice cream-eating, picnic dinnering, drippy peach-eating you can this month… For the recipe, and oh so much more Lee & Lou click here.
