The Twelve Posts of Christmas: Slow Roasted Tomato & Peach Salad with White Wine Vinegar

You may be thinking peaches would not go very well with tomato, but tomatoes are so lovely and sweet when slow roasted, I think the peaches go rather well with them! Back off the sweetness with some white wine vinegar, and a sprinkling of  onion and fresh basil, and some cracked black pepper and salt. Easily made the day before so there's less to do on Christmas Day. Delicious! If you drain this well, the salad would go beautifully in a tart with some pine nut parmesan.

Equal amounts of tomatoes and peaches (1 each per person for a side dish)
olive oil
sliced onion
fresh basil
cracked black pepper
white wine vinegar

In a roasting pan, put quartered tomatoes and chunky slices of peach. Drizzle with olive oil and cover with foil. Roast at 130C for about an hour. Fruit should still hold together but be soft. Take out and allow to cool. toss some raw sliced onion, fresh basil, a splash of vinegar, and the salt and pepper to taste. Voila!
