I’ve made a version of this salad several times this summer. The basic ingredients are peaches, grilled chicken, walnuts, goat cheese and spinach. We’ve tried grilling the peaches- pretty tasty if you have time. And we’ve also added procuitto to top it all off- a nice touch if you have the extra cash to pay for it! This time we made a different dressing and loved it!
This dressing is perfect for light salads with fresh or dried fruits. It’s a citrus base but has a sweet touch with the honey added.
Lemon Basil Vinaigrette
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 TB honey
1 garlic clove, minced (optional
Mix all ingredients until thoroughly combined and pour over salad. Garnish with fresh basil.
Here is my initial recipe for a Grilled Peach and Proscuitto Salad.
