Ingredients

Peach and Gorgonzola Salad:

  • 12 ounces spring lettuce blend or greens of choice
  • 2 large peaches pitted and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup Gorgonzola cheese crumbled
  • 1 shallot minced
  • 1/2 cup candied walnuts

Tangy Peach Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup champagne vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons peach preserves or jam
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Begin by candying your walnuts. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add walnuts and brown sugar, mixing continuously until walnuts are covered and sugar is melted. Place a sheet of wax paper on a plate, coat lightly with cooking spray and lay walnuts in a single layer. Sprinkle lightly with fine sea salt. Set aside and allow to cool.
  2. Heat oven to high broil. Lay peach slices in a single layer and place under the broiler. Watch carefully and remove when peaches start to sizzle and brown, approximately 5-8 minutes.
  3. Wash lettuce and dry well. Toss into a large serving bowl. Top with Gorgonzola cheese and shallots.
  4. Combine Dijon mustard through freshly ground black pepper in an airtight container and shake, shake, shake until mixed. Add lettuce and toss well.
  5. Lastly, and right before serving, add peach slices and candied walnuts. Enjoy your Peach and Gorgonzola Salad with Tangy Peach Dressing!
