Cucumber – Peach Salad

By Colleen


I enjoy this time of the season because of all the fresh vegetables and fruits that we can grow in our garden’s and fruit from our fruit trees. What I haven’t grown in my garden I purchase from local vendors at the Saturday Market or from roadside stands in my area.

Here is a favorite of mine during this time of the summer season fresh cucumber and peach salad.


1 medium cucumber , thinly sliced

2 medium peaches, pitted and sliced

2 Tbsp. rice vinegar

2 Tbsp. fresh basil – chiffonade or sliced thinly

1 Tbsp. fresh mint

1tsp. sunflower seeds (optional)

Thinly slice cucumber and marinate slices in the rice vinegar for at least 1 hour in fridge to blend flavor. Toss gently with peaches just prior to serving. Garnish with basil, mint and sunflower seeds.
