Amaretto Peach Salad by Chef WatelEntertaining-Watel1


6 peaches (or ripe pears or plums, depending on availability)

½ cup amaretto

¼ sugar

Sliced toasted almonds

Chopped fresh mint


Cut peaches in slices.

In a bowl, mix amaretto and sugar with the sliced peaches, almonds and mint.  Let marinate for 30 minutes.

Serve in martini glasses.

* Lauren’s note: If substituting oranges or grapefruit for peaches, try using a different liqueur as well – one with citrus notes, such as Grand Marnier.
