Hi all– Wanted to layer up a quick salad to go with our Thai Peanut Chicken (see previous post) and this is what we had in the fridge. It was on the table in 5 minutes– and thanks to a great peach, tasted like summer. Here it is:
SIMPLEST SUMMER SALAD
2 handfuls of bag baby spinach
1 peach, pitted and cut into chunks
a handful of pecans pieces
2 tab. good olive oil*
2 tab. of thick rich balsamic vinegar**
Layer it up in that order. Done.
*I love the Spanish Olive Oil from Trader Joe’s — it smells like a summer evening in Spain!
** Our kids gave us a couple bottles of the thickest sweetest balsamic from Westridge market in Ojai (thanks Jodi)– almost like vinegar maple syrup!! It makes my normal balsamic looks tired. So now I’m looking for the richest version I can find around here… It really made the salad.
P.S. I’m almost embarrassed to post this as a recipe. It’s so simple. But we really liked it and hope you do too!
