Peach Salad with Glazed Walnuts

August 28, 2019Teresa

This recipe for Peach Salad with Glazed Walnuts is awesome! No kidding. The salad includes spring mix, a little red onion, lemon peel, peaches, glazed walnuts and feta cheese. The dressing is made with avocado oil, honey, Dijon mustard, lemon juice and a peach! It’s mouthwatering indeed.

The homemade glazed walnuts are so easy to make too. Just add sugar and walnuts to a skillet. In about 3 minutes the sugar melts and glazes the walnuts. Spread the nuts out onto a cookie sheet to cool.

The salad takes me about 7 to 8 minutes to make. The dressing only a couple of minutes. So in ten minutes you have a luscious salad that’s perfect for family dinners, entertaining or company meals.

This salad is definitely best with fresh peaches. However, if you want to enjoy it in the winter months, you can substitute canned peaches. I would make sure they are patted dry before using.

I made this luscious salad a couple of times last month. Once for my son and his wife, when we had them over for dinner. Then for our church’s college gang for a Sunday night dinner. They love my creative salads, so it’s rare when any is left over.

This salad is also terrific with pears. Give Peach Salad with Glazed Walnuts a try for supper before peaches go out of season. You’ll be so glad you did.

      Hi Viana. We loved this tasty recipe. It doesn’t take very long to make either. I can sit down and eat almost the whole salad by myself. 🙂
