I know it's summer when peaches, my favorite fruit, are readily available. But I never thought to use them in a salad until recently. For this recipe, I simply layered them over fresh, crisp baby arugula and a marriage made in heaven was born.
I finished the salad with a few broccoli sprouts, and drizzled my favorite light, citrusy vinaigrette and I had a dish pretty enough to serve as a first course to guests or a lovely treat for a lunch outdoors on the deck.
This easy salad is summertime perfection.
