Sweet and salty, a pretty summer favorite for when those peaches are in season! Serves 6 people, Prep time: 15 minutes
Balsamic vinegarjust a few drops
salt & peppera lot!
1-2heads of lettuce
1ripe peachthinly sliced
1/4cupcrumbled gorgonzola cheese
Part One: Nonno's Salata Dressing
Thinly slice the onion and drop in a salad bowl.
Drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil over the onions.
Drizzle a much smaller proportion of vinegar over the mixture. (Just a few drops!)
Season with salt and pepper and muddle the onions in the mixture. A fork works but a pestle is even better.
The onions are ready when they get brown from the balsamic vinegar/ oil mixture. The secret here is letting the dressing sit… the longer it sits, the better it gets. Give it at least three minutes, but give it thirty minutes to an hour and you’ll thank yourself.
Part Two: Assemble
Toss in the lettuce, sliced peaches, basil and parsley.
