This fresh and fruity salad was something I discovered at a potluck. I love all the healthy ingredients in it—slices of fresh peaches (or nectarines) and strawberries, with some slivered or sliced almonds added in—all tossed in a slightly sweet-and-tangy vinaigrette. Crumbles of delicious Feta cheese top the salad.
It’s a great side dish to enjoy during peach season! I actually like using smooth-skinned nectarines in this salad—you can use either peaches or nectarines, or a combination of both. You don’t even need to peel the peaches—how great is that?!
