Pickled red onion is incredibly delicious. Tangy and sweet, with a burst of mellowed piquancy, it completely transforms the ingredients around it. It’s also fast and easy to make. In this bountiful summer salad (served with crispy goat cheese baguette toasts), we’re featuring it two ways by using some of the pickling mixture as the base of a vinaigrette that coats arugula, romaine lettuce, vibrant heirloom tomatoes and summer stone fruit. (Depending on what’s freshest in your area, you may receive different varieties of tomato and stone fruit than those pictured. But don’t worry: just use them as instructed, and enjoy, chefs!)

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel, halve and thinly slice the onion. Halve the baguette lengthwise. Core and thinly slice the tomatoes.

Pickle the onion:
2 Pickle the onion:

In a small pot, combine the vinegar, honey, onion, a big pinch of salt and ¼ cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Cook, stirring occasionally, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined. Remove from heat and set aside to pickle.

Make the goat cheese toasts:
3 Make the goat cheese toasts:

While the onion pickles, place the baguette halves on a sheet pan, cut sides up. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toast in the oven 6 to 8 minutes, or until golden brown and slightly crispy. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool slightly. When cool enough to handle, spread the toasted baguette halves with the goat cheese. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.

5 Plate your dish:

In a large bowl, combine the arugula, lettuce, mint, stone fruits, tomatoes and as much of the pickled onion as you’d like (draining off the remaining pickling liquid before adding); season with salt and pepper. Add as much of the vinaigrette as you’d like (you may have extra); toss to coat and season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide the salad between 2 plates. Cut the goat cheese toasts in half crosswise and serve on the side. Enjoy!
