Get 'em while you can!

I am already fearing the end of 'peach season'... when they start to get dry and grainy... then just vanish from my life altogether!  Oh the misery!  That being said, I want to incorporate them into as many dishes as possible while I still can!!  Breakfast, snacks, desserts, mains, SALADS!!  By tossing a few simple ingredients together, you come out with a sweet yet peppery summer side dish.

Rocket, Peach, & Pinenut Salad


2 peaches, stoned and sliced
2 tbsp pinenuts
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
2 handfuls rocket
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp honey
salt and pepper


1. Toss peaches with a bit of lemon juice to prevent browning.  Lightly toast pinenuts in a dry pan making sure not to burn.
2.  Combine peaches, pinenuts, red onion and rocket.  For dressing, whisk remaining ingredients together.  Toss with the salad and serve.
