Lisa’s Macedonia


Some of Lisa’s best memories are of eating peaches from Nonantola, a town northeast of Modena where her parents’ friends had a vast peach grove and farm. While vacationing at Forte dei Marmi together in Versilia on the Tuscan coast, these peaches would be served as part of a decadent macedonia, or Italian fruit salad. The perfect way to end a rich summer feast al fresco, enjoy this recipe from Lisa’s Italian Kitchen!
