Are we seriously starting the last week of July? I’m not ready for another summer to end, although technically it doesn’t end for a while but with school lurking around the corner it always feels like the season is over before it really is. That’s not fair, in my opinion. There are so many things I love about every season, but one thing I truly love about summer is all the produce we have available to us. Summer fruits and veggies are my favorite. Right now, I’m absolutely hooked on peaches and my kids and I have been eating them daily. Sweet summer peaches are the best.

Have you tried adding peaches to a salad? I tried this Spinach Salad with Peaches, Gorgonzola and Almonds several years ago and always look forward to summertime when the peaches start showing up in the produce section. When I’m picking out my peaches, I like to get ones that are still a bit firm and leave them out to ripen on the counter for a day or two. If you are having an intense peach craving and want to eat one immediately then select one that starts to give when you gently press on the area around the stem. If it gives, then it’s ripe and ready to eat.

(I originally posted this Spinach Salad with Peaches recipe in September, 2012, here’s the pic I snapped with my iPhone! I recently updated the photos for this post to share again, but I always like to keep my original photos when I can.)

I know I’ve mentioned before that I have been focusing on weight loss and body composition this year and a lot of my results have come from tracking my food in My Fitness Pal (if you want to connect there, you can find me under aggiegoodman). Tracking my food has become a daily habit for me, and one of the most helpful tools on MFP has been to “save meals”, especially ones that I tend to eat often. It makes tracking SO much easier when you can just add a quick meal in without thinking too hard. It also provides nutrition information for the meal which has helped me in providing that same information for my recipes when I post them here for you. You can save a meal by clicking on the 3 dots in the meal section (if you are using the app), Save Meal should then come up as an option. When I am actively tracking it makes a huge difference because I take the time to measure out ingredients like the almonds and gorgonzola and dressing in a meal like this – those can be calorie killers and if you are trying to drop weight then it does make a difference. I don’t worry too much about exact measurements of fruits and veggies because they are fruits and veggies.

You’ll have to let me know if you try this Spinach Salad with Peaches! If you are a fan of salads with fruit in them (like this Spinach Strawberry and Walnut Salad) then I think you will enjoy it.

    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!

    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. 🙂

    My husband says he hates salads with fruit but his tune seems to change when it has bacon in it! LOL I personally love peaches and salads with fruit, can’t wait to try this!

    • Aggies Kitchen posted July 29, 2017 at 7:44 am

      Throw some bacon in this one for him! It will be delicious!! 🙂

    Wow! Such a finger-licking recipe, Aggie! Would you consider this a summer salad, or it can be eaten all year long?

  20. Eshika Roy posted July 28, 2017 at 1:40 am

    I literally started having hunger pangs halfway through the post. It looks amazing and I bet it also tastes delicious too. It is the perfect dish to cook up in this season. I can’t wait to try it . Looking forward to reading more delectable recipes in the upcoming posts.

  21. Isabella posted August 14, 2017 at 5:19 am

    Wow, that’s very interesting combination, never thought of eating spinach and peaches together. But I love those two products independently, so maybe they’ll make a good combination 🙂 will try it!

  22. Animeyt posted August 14, 2017 at 11:31 pm

    This is looking an awesome recipe, I must try it in coming days.
