Summer Peach Salad

I look forward to peach season every year!

Peaches are sweet, juicy, refreshing, and can be used for any meal at any time of the day. They literally go with everything.

Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Dessert.

Morning to night - they are at your service.


The other day I was craving some version of a peach salad, but I didn't have a lot of time. I also just wanted to use what was in my fridge. This peach, arugula, and tomato salad is what I ended up with.


Set on a bed of light and airy whipped goat cheese - the peppered arugula, sweet peaches, and tangy goat cheese are well balanced with the bright tomatoes and sharp balsamic.

It only took me all of 10 minutes to whip this up.

Feel free to play around with this. It would be great with any stone fruit, maybe topped with some sort of protein - prosciutto, you available? A lemon vinaigrette would also pair well. The choice is yours, and the options are endless.
