It seems that in the summer months we always have an over abundance of fresh fruit and veggies hanging around the kitchen and it's just fun to put a few together for a healthy lunch or as a side salad with chicken or fish on the barbecue. We really liked this combination of spinach, peach and red grapes. I made a light peach dressing with honey and lemon that is healthy and delicious. The salad recipe is for an individual serving, just multiply for a salad bowl. The salad dressing recipe will be plenty for a large bowl of salad.
This salad tastes best when all ingredients are really chilled before assembling. I would suggest making the salad dressing first and putting it in the fridge while you make the salad.
Ingredients for an individual serving:
a good handful of baby spinach
ten seedless red grapes cut in half
1/2 large peach, peeled and cut into pieces
1 teaspoon red minced onion
1 tablespoon feta cheese crumbles
1 tablespoon chopped pecans
Salad can be made in a large salad bowl as well, just multiply servings. You will have plenty of dressing and any that is leftover can be saved for a couple of days. You can also use it as a marinade for chicken or fish before baking.
Ingredients for the peach dressing:
1 medium peach, peeled, pitted, and sliced
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1 Tablespoon honey
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Blend in blender until smooth. Serve by spoonfuls on individual servings, or if making a large salad just toss some in before serving.
