The Recipe


  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil

  • 1 lb firm, ripe Yellow Peaches (sliced)
  • 1 Tbsp Oregano (chopped)

  3. Stir in peaches and oregano; cook until peaches are soft, 5-7 minutes.
  4. Whisk remaining oil with vinegar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; add onion and peaches.
  5. Combine green beans and caramelized onions and peaches for a cool summer salad!
