Spinach Salad with Fresh Late Summer Peaches, Gorgonzola and Almonds

by Aggies Kitchen on September 17, 2012

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!!!

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!
