Summer Peach Salad

My favorite time of the year to visit Oregon is when my Dad’s peach trees are ready to harvest–his peaches would rival any I’ve tasted.  And my Mom is a genius at all sorts of delectable peach desserts, into which I thoroughly indulge my senses!

But I want more!  More ways to enjoy this yummy fruit…  and that aren’t all going to tempt my sweet tooth!

This particular salad is such a nice, fresh combination of greens with luscious fruit that truly gets taste buds tingly!  And when it’s time to harvest peaches, and their juicy sweetness just melts in your mouth, this is yet another way to incorporate them into your mealtime.

Ingredients:

1 large peach, sliced
2 baby cucumbers, thinly sliced
1 medium-sized avocado
2 cups red leaf lettuce, torn into bite-sized pieces
¼ large red onion, thinly sliced
¼ cup diced micro green salad blend
1/8 cup fresh Cilantro, minced

Dressing:

¼ cup Champagne Vinegar
Juice from ½ of a large lemon
1/3 cup organic sugar
¼ cup fresh Mint, minced
¼ tsp Salt
1/8 tsp pepper

Mix salad ingredients together in a large bowl. Blend dressing ingredients until smooth. Pour over salad, mix and enjoy!
