There are many things to love about summer, and peaches are definitely toward the top of the list. This salad is a nice combo of sweet-pungeant-spicy. The peaches, feta and pepper jelly all put their best features forward and the result is delicious. Our Strawberry Pepper Jelly is made from Pontchatoula berries and moderately hot jalapeños. It's the perfect sweet heat for this vinaigrette.
4 cups baby greens
1 large peach, pitted and sliced
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup pecan pieces
Strawberry Pepper Jelly Vinaigrette--recipe below
Salt and Pepper
Gently toss the baby greens in the vinaigrette. Use just enough dressing to coat the leaves. There should not be dressing pooling in the bottom of the bowl. Sprinkle the greens with a little salt and pepper. Garnish the salad with the peaches, feta and pecans. Enjoy!
