Peach Basil Summer Salad

The perfect summer themed salad to switch up your typical salad routine!

2 cups baby spinach

2 cups arugula

Handful of fresh basil, torn into pieces

1/4 red onion, chopped

1/4 cup slivered almonds

2 yellow peaches

4 tbsp feta cheese, or dairy-free alternative

3 tbsp olive oil

2-3 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1/2 tsp salt

  1. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the peach skin (or blanch and peel by hand).
  2. To make the peach vinaigrette, blend up one peach in a food processor or blender until smooth.
  3. Pour the liquefied peach into a small jar and stir in the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and salt. Taste and add more or less vinegar and salt as you desire.
  4. Toss the greens in the dressing to evenly coat before adding toppings.
  5. Slice up the remaining peach and toss into the greens with the torn basil, almonds, onion, and feta.
  6. Serve fresh! Keep remaining peach dressing in the fridge for up to one week.
