Broccoli Peach Salad

Gluten Free Living – 2015

Okay, guys, I’m going to blow your mind with this salad recipe today! I think Broccoli Peach Salad is my F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E broccoli salad recipe! No kidding. It is filled with crunchy veggies, sweet fruit, and even uses a healthy homemade dressing (i.e., no mayo or Miracle Whip!). While I used bacon in the recipe, I tried to use one without nitrates. You can substitute turkey bacon if you prefer. This salad just smacks of flavor and is quite filling too.

Back in September I brought this salad with me to a friend’s house for lunch. I wanted to pray with her after breast cancer surgery and before she would subsequently undergo radiation therapy. This recipe makes a good bit of salad, but I think both of us enjoyed it so much we ate two humongous plates of Broccoli Peach Salad! While I love Broccoli Salads, adding the peaches to it was ingenious in my opinion. I recently made one with apples that turned out terrific, but this one is based on my Healthy Broccoli Salad, which has been my go-to Broccoli Salad recipe for years. I took a few things out, added a few things, and left out the mayonnaise entirely substituting Greek yogurt instead. I tell you, this had to have been one of the BEST salads I’ve ever made. Peaches make this salad glorious!

Broccoli Peach Salad is also incredibly easy to make. The dressing only uses three ingredients: Greek yogurt, honey and apple cider vinegar. A little mix with the whisk and all of about 60 seconds of time and it’s done! I don’t peel the peaches either, so that also saves time in preparing the basic salad ingredients. All in all, this salad only took me about 10 minutes to make. Like I said, quick and E-A-S-Y!

If you’re looking for a great salad to make during the late summer-early fall period when peaches are in season, this is a great salad to take to potlucks, backyard barbecues, family reunions or any time you want a delicious tasting salad. It’s a great way to get your kids to eat their broccoli, too! 🙂

Just before serving toss salad ingredients with dressing. Or you can refrigerate for a couple of hours before the broccoli gets soft.

    I added some ground ginger to the dressing and used toasted sunflower seeds v pecans. YUM! Thx for the recipe!

      Love those ideas, Dudley. I bet the salad was to die for. It’s certainly one of my favorites.

    This sounds so good, Teresa! I never in a million years would have thought of putting peaches in broccoli salad, but it sounds great! I like that the dressing is a little more low in fat, too. Would love to try this sometime!

      Shari, this salad was so good. I hope you give it a try. It is certainly a great go-to salad while peaches are still in season.
