Peach Salad with Glazed Walnuts
Gluten Free Living – 2019
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.
Peach Salad with Glazed Walnuts is absolutely scrumptious.
The Peach Vinaigrette salad dressing makes this salad really special.

Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the salad.
Place skillet on high heat and heat pan for 3 minutes. Add sugar and walnuts.
Stir ingredients to combine well.

Break apart the walnuts and place on a cookie sheet to cool.
Place spring mix in a very large salad bowl.
Add diced red onion, and the gratings of one whole lemon.
Slice peaches and swish in lemon juice so both sides are covered well.
Drain peaches on a paper towel. Then pat dry.
Layer peaches in salad bowl.
Add grape halves.
Sprinkle Feta Cheese over top.
Add glazed walnuts and a few more peaches on top. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
I used these ingredients for the Peach Vinaigrette.
Pour avocado oil and honey into a blender. Add Dijon mustard and the juice from one large lemon.

Pour Peach Vinaigrette into a serving carafe.
