Grilled Chicken, Peach and Walnut Salad

Fruits and vegetables are good for you and they are even better married in  a salad. The combination of sweet, savory and crunchy makes this peach chicken salad perfection. This is easy to prepare and perfect for those warm spring and summer days when you want something satisfying and refreshing.

Peaches are the star in this recipe, so only use the freshest, ripest, juiciest ones you can find

Use a mix of fresh salad greens.

Red onion adds a nice pungent dimension to the salad

Walnuts or pecans add a nice crunch. I love to use glazed walnuts because it adds something special

 The  flavors in this salad are bright and refreshing and perfect for spring and summer when its warm and you don't feel like cooking

Ingredients
2 large peaches
2 grilled chicken breasts (roasted works well too)
1/2 cup red onion
1/2 cup salad dressing (recipe below)
6 cups spring salad mix
6 cups spring salad mix or your own blend of chopped salad greens
Citrus Vinaigrette Salad Dressing
1 small shallot chopped
3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Braggs organic apple cider vinegar 
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Directions:

Peel peach and slice into long sections, slice red onion, and slice your chicken into small pieces and put in large bowl. Add salad greens and peaches and toss with Citrus Vinaigrette dressing or store bought poppy seed dressing

For the salad dressing, whisk all of the ingredients together in a nonreactive bowl until thoroughly combined.
 
 Bon Appetit!

Good sharing with healthy recipe, yes, apple cider vinegar (ACV) helps to boost metabolism, blocks the body’s storage of dietary fat plus breaks down and dissolves existing body fat. A study at Australia’s University of Sydney in which subjects who consumed two tablespoon of ACV daily experienced fewer surges and crashes in blood sugar levels. Read more at:

My husband and I have been eating healthier for several months now. We're doing a lot of salads. Sometimes though, that gets old so this one would add variation. It may take some convincing for him to eat it (he's picky) but it's worth a try.
