Peach Arugula Salad

Last week, I posted on my Instagram about this amazing Peach Arugula salad we had.

It was the perfect end-of-summer hurrah, and I couldn't have been more pleased.

I like to cook seasonally, and thankfully since I live in the South, my favorite fruits and veggies are "in season" a bit longer than in other areas. I am grateful as peaches hold a special place in my heart, and I was wanting to do something more than my typical Peach Walnut Tarte or Peach Cobbler Pancakes.

Add in the fact that our garden had a few greens left that the local deer didn't destroy, and this gal was some kind of happy.

This salad is super easy and so damn delicious. We are a family of six-- we have four sons. So anything that they devour without 1,000 questions of "What is this?" and "Do I have to eat it?" is a win in our book.

Peach Arugula Salad

What You Need:

1 package Organic Girl Arugula

4-5 ripe medium Organic Peaches, pitted + thinly sliced

2 Organic Yellow Bell Peppers, diced

1/3 c Toasted Organic Walnuts, chopped

1 can Organic Northern Beans, drained and pan seared.

2 tbsp Organic Avocado Oil

2 tbsp Organic Balsamic Vinegar

1 tbsp Organic Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed is best)

pinch of freshly grated Lemon Zest

pinch of sea salt and pepper to taste

Make it Work:

Combine the Arugula, Peaches, Bell Peppers, Beans and Toasted Walnuts in a large bowl. Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together the Avocado Oil, Vinegar, Lemon Juice + Zest,

salt + pepper.

Drizzle the dressing over the Arugula mixture, gently toss, and serve. Enjoy!

Be Healthy. Live Beautifully
