Peach of immortality… time to have them in salad

[LOVE TIP] Peaches come originally from North East China, and have been prized for their longevity properties. They are believed to sustain vitality. This may be related to the early blossom: Flowers appear even before leaves sprout.

So to revitalize yourself , grab the last peaches and let them ripe if need be – but avoid storing them in the fridge which would stop the maturation process- and prepare this easy-going delicious salad in 15′.

Peaches are warm food (in Traditional Chinese Medicine), hence perfect for the first cold weather. Inspired by ceviche, this salad is a very balanced combination: sweet and sour, crunchy and smooth…
