This week’s Market Fresh Cooking recipe is all seasonal, all fresh and all the way delicious. To quickly whip up this savory fruit salad, head on down to the market on Tuesdays and Saturdays to pick up your peaches, basil and onion. The bounty at the market is off the hook these days. Can’t wait to see you there!

The Recipe


  • 3 peaches, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 1/4 red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil (leaves torn if large)
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil


Toss peaches with red onion, basil, lemon juice, salt, and some pepper. Drizzle with olive oil.
