An unusual combination of ingredients is the highlight of this salad. Though seemingly simple, the dressing creates magic when tossed in with the other ingredients.

Cheese along with basil perks up the flavour of this dish, but I've used only a moderate amount of cheese to keep a check on the calories; alternatively, those who do not like cheese can replace it with low fat paneer, which tastes equally good.

Usually canned peaches cooked in sugar syrup are used, but since that is forbidden for diabetics, I've used very little sugar to cook the peaches to match the taste while still restricting the sugar intake.
