This week's (belated) recipe is a rendition of Heather Ross's Peach and Basil Salad, published in Weekend Sewing: More Than 40 Projects and Ideas for Inspired Stitching .
While she stacks the fruit, cheese and basil, I simply chop mine and toss with the dressing. Also, I use golden balsamic vinegar so that the vibrant oranges and reds retain their gorgeous color.
Seems fitting to make this salad - look at my camera strap! I've been taking photos of salads for weeks with Heather Ross's fabric around my neck. It's about time I featured her salad too.
I have had this fabric in my stash for years. It is one of those treasured cuts that doesn't often get used in my sewing room because I don't want to run out! It is a special project, a bit of pampering, to use this fabric.
In case you love her fabric too, here's a hostess apron in my etsy shop made out of her adorable "Lightning Bugs and Other Mysteries" fabric.
