Nectarine / Peach Salad

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. A salad that can be kept in the refrigerator several days, or also perfect for taking to a picnic or a party! It is like a pickled fruit salad, really delicious. Easy to cut in half for a smaller version.

3/4 cup fruity vinegar
1/2 cup water
6 tablespoons raw sugar
1 teaspoon sea salt
6 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
3 tablespoons chopped candied ginger
1 head lettuce or other greens
6 fresh peaches or nectarines, peeled and sliced
2 cups peeled and thinly sliced cucumbers
1 cup or so of cherry tomatoes
4-5 green onions, thinly sliced, including the green stem
watercress

In glass or ceamic batter bowl, combine vinegar, water, sugar, and salt. Cook in microwave 3 minutes. Whisk well, making sure that the sugar is dissolved. Add the mint and ginger. Cool. Line a 9 by 13 baking dish or large bowl with lettuce leaves. Arrange peaches, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and green onion over lettuce. Pour the dressing over all, tossing gently. Garnish with watercress. Can be served room temperature, or well-chilled.
