Fresh Peach Salad

Fresh Peach Salad

There’s nothing quite like this fresh peach salad dish! Serve the juicy fruit with a balsamic vinaigrette, toasted almonds, and cheese crumbles.


Regarding the salad

  1. ¼ cup almonds, sliced
  2. Six to eight cups of various greens (a mixture of butter lettuce and other greens is our favourite)
  3. Three ripe little (or two huge) peaches
  4. One handful of sliced red onions
  5. ½ cup of drained canned corn (or fresh or grilled corn)
  6. Two ounces of crumbled soft goat cheese (or feta cheese; vegans can skip this)

Regarding the dressing:

  1. 1 ½ tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  2. 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  3. 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  4. ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  5. Fresh ground black pepper
  6. ¼ cup olive oil
  7. Cook Mode Prevent your screen from going dark


  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. Prepare the fresh components. Cut the peaches into slices. Slice the onion thinly.
  3. Prepare the dressing: Combine the balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, olive oil, kosher salt, and multiple pinches of freshly ground black pepper in a small bowl and whisk until the mixture becomes thick and emulsified.
  4. To present: Arrange the greens with the peaches, red onion, almonds, goat cheese and corn on top, and then pour the dressing over them. Serve right away.


Changes made to this peach salad:

  • You could definitely riff on this refreshing peach salad (yes, we said that). It was recently created by my mum, who enjoyed it with a few substitutions. Here are some suggestions for parts you may replace:
  • Cheese options include smoked gouda chunks, sliced Manchego, Parmesan shavings, and feta crumbles.
    Nuts: You can use chopped hazelnuts, pistachios, walnuts, or pecans.
  • Corn: Leave out, or use grilled or fresh corn that has been sliced off the cob.
  • For a milder taste, omit the onion or substitute shallot.
  • Dressing: Try another tangy sweet dressing like Poppy Seed Dressing, Raspberry Vinaigrette, or Strawberry Vinaigrette
