Description

This peach salad recipe is irresistibly fresh! Pair the juicy fruit with cheese crumbles, toasted nuts, and a balsamic vinaigrette.


Ingredients

Scale

For the salad

  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 6 to 8 cups mixed greens (we like a mix of butter lettuce and other greens)
  • 3 small (or 2 large) ripe peaches
  • 1 handful red onion slices
  • 1/2 cup canned corn, drained (or fresh corn or grilled corn)
  • 2 ounces soft goat cheese, crumbled (or feta cheese; omit for vegan)

For the dressing

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Instructions

  1. Toast the almonds: Place the nuts in a dry skillet (no oil) over medium heat. Heat, shaking the pan and stirring often with a wooden spoon, until the nuts are fragrant and golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove immediately from the heat and transfer to a plate to stop the cooking.
  2. Prep the fresh ingredients: Slice the peaches. Thinly slice the onion.
  3. Make the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, olive oil, kosher salt, and several grinds of fresh ground black pepper until thick and emulsified.
  4. Serve: To serve, top the greens with the peaches, almonds, red onion, goat cheese, and corn, then drizzle with the dressing. Serve immediately.
