Spinach Salad with Fresh Late Summer Peaches, Gorgonzola and Almonds

Although I admitted my cravings for chili yesterday, I’m also still (and always) craving a good salad. I just have to share with you the salad that I can’t get enough of lately. Believe me when I say that I’ve been eating it every weekday for the last 2 weeks. Everything about it just works and I insist you make one before the juicy peaches disappear from the markets.

This is a non-recipe, always the best kind of recipes right? I started seeing peaches on salads this summer and wasn’t sure I would like it at first. Boy was I wrong. The salad dressing I’m using for it is a recent discovery as well and would be perfect for any salad that is paired with fruit.

Enjoy and have a great week!

    I never thought I would like a fruit/greens salad, until I tried pears with Gorgonzola cheese. Talk about yummy!

    I have a similar feeling about this salad. I love peaches!!

    The best salads are those that are thrown together. This combination just works, and works well!!!

    Yes, I love a good salad, especially one with warm flavors like gorgonzola and almonds. This looks wonderful!

    This seriously has my mouth watering. I HAVE to try it before the peaches are gone!

    Nothing irritates me more than when people talk smack about salads. Clearly, they’ve never had a good salad like this one! I love anything with peaches and this is right up my alley.

    I love a good salad too. However, I sometimes get too lazy to make them during the day! This salad looks great. Love nectarines!

      I know, I’m grabbing them every time I see them!

  8. Wow! My mouth is literally watering!! There are so many things I’m loving about this salad. I love that its loaded with fiber-licious spinach and flavored up with peaches. Then there is the gorgonzola! Yum! You are totally speaking my language with this post. :)
