This vibrant salad combines fresh tomatoes, sweet Florida Peaches, and crunchy corn to create a salad that is both light and satisfying.
Tomato, Florida Peach, and Corn Salad can be made in just fifteen minutes, serves four, and is also unique for a salad because any leftovers can be kept for the next day or two. Gather the fresh ingredients and make this salad for your next lunch, dinner side, or picnic.
