Salad of Peaches and Strawberries in Orange Vinaigrette

 Last bit of summer fruit for me. Many thanks to Betsy for sharing her peaches with me!


Salad of Peaches and Strawberries in Orange Vinaigrette 

Adapted from:
Yield: 4 servings

1/3 c frozen orange juice concentrate
1T sugar
1 1/2 T champagne or white wine vinegar
1T extra-virgin olive oil
dash of salt
2 c halved strawberries
1-2 ripe peaches or nectarines, cut into wedges
1/4 c small fresh basil leaves (or large leaves cut into strips)

Combine the juice concentrate, sugar, vinegar, oil, and salt into a small jar and shake to emulsify. Place berries and peaches in a bowl and pour the dressing over all. Stir until fruit is coated. Sprinkle top with the basil leaves and serve.


Although not listed in the title, the original recipe includes 1 1/2 c of blueberries using half a cup fewer strawberries and only one large peach. I didn't have blueberries but I believe the salad would be gorgeous, and delicious, with them. I felt like the volume of the dressing was excessive so I saved some for a later salad.   

The original recipe instructs cooks to heat the dressing and pour it over the salad warm, allowing the salad to sit for 20 minutes before serving. I haven't used this extra step but you may want to try it.
