This balsamic peaches and greens salad recipe is not one of those salad recipes that's an excuse to keep out the vegetable bin. Simplicity is the key to this sweet and savory summer peaches and greens salad.
Makes 4 Balsamic Summer Peaches and Greens Salads
1/4 cup aged balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
salt to taste
pinch of cayenne
2 large ripe peaches, cut into 1-inch chucks
6 cups bitter greens such as baby arugula, frisee, or other field greens
Combine the dressing ingredients in a mixing bowl, and whisk to combine. Add the peach chunks and toss to coat. Let sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes. Divide the greens between 4 chilled salad plates. Spoon the peach balsamic mixture over the 4 salads and serve immediately.
Note: this salad recipe should not be made ahead as the peaches will absorb to much dressing and breakdown. Mix before serving.
