This salad is really more like a marinated side dish; the tomatoes and peaches release a lot of liquid. One bonus: You can puree any leftovers for a quick gazpacho!

Bursting with flavor, this versatile spread keeps well in the fridge for about a week, and you can use it on toast (Grilled Toast with Whipped Lemon-Thyme Feta and Summer Squash) , with pasta, added to eggs and frittatas, or in salads. Start with good quality feta and crumble it just before processing. (Don’t buy pre-crumbled feta).
