Hold Onto Summer Salad


Even though Labor Day has come and gone, the weather is still nice and there are some lovely, ripe tomatoes in arms reach. We made this salad inspired from a recipe gifted to us by a family friend from the Wall Street Journal. It's full of end-of-summer delight and freshness; the sweetness of the corn and peaches harmonizes nicely with the acidity of the tomatoes and saltiness of the feta. The basil rounds out the dish.  I can't wait to make this again.

Add all of the fruit and cheese in a bowl, toss with the olive oil, and salt and pepper. Enjoy!
