Fruit salad with a twist! Fresh and zinging with flavor, it is also a visual feast. Even if its fruits come into season at different times in your garden, depending on variety and where you live, you may still be able to catch them all at the same time. If you can't, go shopping.
1 Cut the tomatoes in half. (If using cherry tomatoes, cut them into halves or quarters, if large.) Halve and pit the peaches, and cut into wedges. Halve the strawberries, discarding the hulls.
2 Put the tomatoes, peaches, and strawberries in a glass or ceramic serving dish. Add olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and plenty of black pepper, and add the shredded mint. Toss gently until the fruit is evenly coated with the dressing. Serve immediately.
