Peaches, Si! Tortillas, No!

Renee-Lucie BenoitI was going to write about how to make a tortilla press this week. I had been hankering for homemade tortillas for a while. Unfortunately, I am abysmal at making handmade tortillas thin and round, especially round. So I prevailed upon my Jack of All Trades and Master of Same to make me one. (If you're wondering that's my wonderful husband.) With me assisting, of course, camera and whatever skill I can muster we designed and built a tortilla press this past week. I am sad to report that it needs to go back to the drawing board. I'm sure we can solve the design issues this week and I'll tell you all about it in my next blog.

Anyway, that's the plan.

So instead of showing you how to make a homemade tortilla press using free materials around the farm I am going to share with you an unusual salad that is right in season and absolutely delicious. You might think it sounds weird but, trust me, even though it's one of those combinations that doesn't jump right out at you as being a good one. It is.

Fresh Peach and Roasted Bell Pepper Salad 

I got this recipe from a friend years ago and at the time I pretty much memorized it. It's a good thing, too. I have never been able to find the recipe anywhere since. Maybe I haven't looked hard enough.
