Recipe Box, Peachy Spinach Salad with Bacon and Buttery Almonds

Here’s an easy and delicious salad, featuring ripe summer peaches,

that is perfect for an end of summer dinner

Baby spinach, romaine lettuce, fresh peaches, red grapes,

crispy bacon, buttery almonds, bleu cheese

and poppy seed dressing…

Quite a yummy combination!

With or without bacon, it’s a winning combo~

and if you don’t like bleu cheese, sub any cheese you like

I always opt for bacon,

and you could even add cooked chicken to make it even heartier

I used Brianna’s Poppy Seed Dressing,

it’s a light dressing with just a touch of sweet

that compliments the variety of ingredients

Serve it with a delicious Cheesy Zucchini Biscuit!

Buttery Almonds
Saute sliced almonds in a skillet with a little olive oil and enough butter to coat.  Season with kosher salt and sprinkle generously with brown sugar and cook over medium heat until they begin to turn golden, stirring constantly.  This takes 3-5 minutes, don’t walk away or they can burn.  Transfer almonds to wax paper or a plate to cool. Store in a jar.

    Yum, this sounds and looks delicious – I never would have thought of peaches with bacon. I might just have to check out the farmer’s market this weekend. I’m thinking I could probably sub some herb and garlic goat cheese for the bleu cheese. Thanks for such an interesting salad recipe. Pinned!

    This looks good! I’ve always been a weirdo, afraid to try fruit in salads bc I wasn’t sure if the sweet combo would taste good. It certainly looks good through! I’m going to get up the nerve & try it! Thanks for sharing on Crafty Creators!
