You guys know I love a good salad almost as much as I love a good taco, and when the delicious flavors of those two combine, I’m basically in heaven. This recipe was born from one of those typical summer moments when I accidentally came home from the farmers’ market with more peaches and tomatoes than one family of four could consume in a month (let alone a week.) In my desperate attempt to do something with them that wasn’t pasta, pizza, or cobbler, I decided to throw it all together in a new twist on a summer salad, make it Mexican with a zesty cilantro dressing, and the results were pretty darn mind-blowing. And it turned out to be the perfect recipe for our next post with Blue Diamond Almonds, since the Smokehouse flavor added both crunch and major dimension to my salad in one quick step.
