Cucumber salads are a favorite of mine, I’ve written about cucumber with tomatoes and fennel, among other combos. But recently I saw a new take on a cucumber salad from Bon Apettit, a cucumber and peach salad.
Fresh peaches are a wonderful summer treat, why not combine them with cucumbers for something different? “The combination of sweet, fragrant peaches and crunchy, hydrating cucumbers works weirdly well,” writes Andy Baraghani in Bon Apettit. The recipe is inspired by street vendor offerings he saw in Mexico, he explains. So his recipe involves hot sauce and chiles.
I’m not a hot sauce or spicy food type, so I’d leave those both out, as I could the salt he recommends.Ingredients you’ll need are cucumbers, peaches, lime juice, tarragon or cilantro.
Give it a try (add the hot sauce if you enjoy it) and let me know how it turns out.
