Peach, Fig and Feta Salad

Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2022

If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, you know how much I enjoy salads. We eat Chopped Greek Salad every week! But this Peach, Fig and Feta Salad turned out incredibly well also. This salad has plenty of sweetness from the peaches, grapes and figs. The savory flavors come from roasted pecans, Feta cheese, cucumbers and celery. A little finely diced red onion adds a little pop. Overall, this is one terrific salad.

A few months ago I was looking every where for fresh figs. I was craving them. 🙂 Apparently, they are harvested around December, so I began looking for dried figs instead. I found some at our local Sprouts and decided to give this recipe a whirl. I used a blend of spring mix and arugula for the lettuce. Arugula is naturally bitter, so adding the spring mix off-set that a lot. Plus, having the fruit made a difference.

I used two different salad dressings that I purchased at a local Walmart. Cindy’s Kitchen has a Fig Balsamic Dressing and a Honey Mango Pepper Dressing which includes habanero peppers. It’s REALLY hot and spicy. Enough to burn your tongue off. But it’s also really delicious! Both dressings worked really well. But any kind of poppyseed or honey mustard dressing would also pair nicely with this salad combination.

I used white flesh peaches from early in the season. But now that peach season is over, I recommend trying canned peaches instead. Peach, Fig and Feta Salad is healthy and gluten free. It’s a delightful gourmet-type salad that’s wonderful for company or holiday dinners. And I may even make a fig lover out of you after one bite of this fantastic salad. 🙂

This salad is really good with a sweet dressing rather than Ranch or something with a strongly pungent flavor.
