We have lots of peaches going, going. And I happened upon this recipe in Real Simple ... mom made it ... delicious!
Beef, watercress and peach salad with lime vinaigrette
2 bunches of watercress, thick stems removed (we used lettuce and and some spinach)
4 ripe peaches, cut into wedges
1 1-pound piece roast beef, cubed (we seared a steak and cut into thin stips)
1/4 c lime
1 1/2 t sugar
kosher salt and pepper
1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
2 t finely grated ginger
1/2 c extra-virgin olive oil
2 large shallots, thinly sliced
In a large bowl, combine the watercress, cucumbers, peaches, and beef. Pour the lime juice into a small bowl and whisk ni the sugar and 1/2 t salt until dissolved. Add the garlic, ginger, and 1/4 t pepper. Slowly add the oil in a steady stream, whisking constantly until emulsified. Stir in the shallots. Transfer the salad to a serving bowl or platter nd drizzle the vingaigrette over the top.
Like I said, we altered a little but it was so good!
