Peach and Bacon "Salad"8:00 AM
So this definitely isn't the best picture, but this dish Brandon and I threw together on Tuesday night was so good. When Brandon deemed it "good enough to make for other people," I knew we had a winner.
3-4 white peaches, sliced and halved
6-8 strips of bacon
Feta, crumbled (we did approximately 1/3 cup)
Basil, fresh and julienned
1/2 red onion, sliced
1. Cook the bacon. We like to cook it in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes. We lay it out on wax paper (parchment paper would actually be better) on a cookie sheet and it keeps it from drawing up. Our silpat would actually be really good for this too.
2. While the bacon is cooking, saute your onions with a little bit of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. Cook until slightly translucent. Let cool.
3. Once it is cooked and cooled, crumble the bacon
4. Combine the sliced peaches, crumbled bacon, onions, feta, and basil in a bowl and toss.
*I didn't think it needed extra olive oil after sauteeing the onions, but feel free to add a little more if you think it needs it.
*If you don't let it cool, the feta will melt and I find melted feta to be a weird consistency.
