Summertime Peaches

Some people say that peaches should never be eaten before the Fourth of July. All I can say is in Las Vegas peaches are plenty delicious right now!  You know that peaches are ripe and ready to eat when they are a deep golden color and have a slight give to the flesh when you gently squeeze the peach. Below is a wonderful fresh peach salad to try this summer.
