About the Recipe


  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves, plus small leaves, for garnish

  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 ripe but firm yellow peaches, cut into wedges

  • 4 tomatoes, preferably a mix of large heirloom tomatoes, cored and cut into wedges

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


Step 1

Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Add the basil to the boiling water and cook until just wilted and bright green, about 15 seconds. Transfer with a slotted spoon to a blender and puree until smooth. With the machine running, add the olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

Step 2

Spread the basil puree on a serving platter. Arrange the peaches and tomatoes on top and sprinkle with the lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Garnish with whole basil leaves and serve.
