Embracing Peach Season

It’s officially peach season in Missouri, and I am clearly so excited! Growing up, I remember hoping and praying for peaches on Grandma and Grandpa’s farm. They didn’t fruit each year, but when they did, we didn’t.waste.one.

I love taking the girls to pick peaches and I look forward to sharing some of my favorite childhood flavors with them. I just might even attempt Aunt Mildred’s jam. In Missouri, we truly eat seasonally. I embrace each day we have fresh, flavorful fruit.

Honey Dijon Vinaigrette Dressing

Honey dijon vinaigrette is a classic, timeless salad dressing that can be used to marinate chicken, as a dip for vegetables and crusty bread or as a versatile salad dressing. It works really well with all lettuce, including endive.

Honey dijon vinaigrette is one of my go-to’s, although I don’t care much for honey or mustard when they are standing alone. However, when paired together they create a sweet and slightly tangy dressing that makes me fall in love with salad all over again.

A Simple Peach Salad

This week I’m eating peach salad with honey dijon vinaigrette. I love tossing it with goat cheese and candied pecans and topping it with ripe peaches for a light, summery flavor.

To make this simple peach salad, you’ll need the following: 

  • Your favorite greens. This vinaigrette recipe pairs especially well with leafy lettuces like baby spinach, butter lettuce, and endive.
  • Fresh sliced peaches. Truly, the fresher the better! That ripe juicy flavor adds so much to this simple salad!
  • Goat cheese. Any cheese works, but creamy soft goat cheese is the perfect foil to the honey dijon in this case! 
  • Candied pecans. You can make a simple candied pecan, but I also like to keep some on hand to throw into salads. Trader Joe’s makes a great candied pecan and you can find them here!
  • Honey Dijon Vinaigrette. Don’t skip this homemade dressing, it’s the star of the show! I love a good shortcut when it saves time, but you’ll never regret adding a two-minute homemade dressing to your salad!
