Salad Greens with Peaches and Blackberries
mixture of watercress, bibb lettuce and baby red-leaf lettuce (4 to 6 cups)
1 to 2 fresh peaches, sliced
1/2 pint fresh blackberries
fresh basil or mint leaves, thinly sliced
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon toasted cumin seeds, crushed (see note)
1 jalapeepper, seeded and minced
1/3 cup olive oil
Rinse the salad greens in cold water and drain well. Place them in a large salad bowl. Add the peaches, blackberries and basil or mint leaves.
Dressing: In a small bowl, combine the red wine vinegar, lime juice, honey, cumin and jalapeepper. Whisk in the olive oil. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss gently to combine. Serves 4 to 6.
Note: To toast the cumin seeds, place the seeds in a small skillet over medium heat. Toast, turning often, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove the seeds from the pan and cool. Crush the cumin seed in a mortar with pestle or in a spice grinder.
