EDM 133 - Draw a Peach




I found this beautiful white-fleshed peach at the market. It has more delicate coloring than a regular peach, and a more delicate taste as well. They seem to ripen better and sweeter than the other peaches which sometimes never ripen. I ate this one in a salad for supper. This recipe is worth sharing.




Romain lettuce, torn into pieces
One peach, peeled and wedged
One yellow tomato, wedged
Slices of red onion
Toss together.
Add the dressing:
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp honey
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Whisk til blended and pour over salad and toss again.
Add some freshly cracked black pepper and salt to taste.

Lynn -- What a book you are creating .. I'd love a copy of your illustrated recipe book -- this peach is absolutely "PEACHY" and looks as appetizing as the recipe!!! So when do you publish????

Beautiful! Love the color of the shadow. It goes so well with the lusciousness of the peach.

Can I eat at your place? That recipe sounds great!

You did a wonderful job on the peach challenge. Great color, and your handling of the paint suggests that fuzzy texture. The shadow is beautiful. I can almost smell it!
