Summertime salads are truly the best of both worlds. Everything is so bright and fresh that it just tastes better! Unlike baking, you can customize ingredients without compromising the entire dish. Win/win! Finish with a simple vinaigrette and your choice of protein and you have a healthy dinner that is sure to be a hit with the family.
Our featured peach recipe is a peach, blueberry and goat cheese salad with a peach/brown sugar vinaigrette dressing.
Like blueberries? Extra goat cheese? You do you!
In a large bowl, combine the below ingredients in a ratio that is complimentary to your taste preference.
Choice of lettuce- we used a mix of baby greens
Peaches (ripe, but firm)- sliced thin
Blueberries- as many as you want!
Goat cheese crumbles
Red onion- sliced thin
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
Because of the peaches, the end result will be thicker than a traditional oil and vinegar dressing.
1 ½ peaches (ripe)- peeled/pitted and cubed
¾ cup vegetable oil
½ cup white vinegar
1 TBSP- Dijon mustard
4 TBSP- Brown Sugar
Salt, pepper and garlic powder- to taste
