Detox Monday: Summer Peach Salad

A few weekends back, one of our couple friends invited us over for a delicious Saturday brunch. The meal consisted of a gluten-free Asparagus and Gouda Quiche, a Summer Peach Salad, and a beautiful fruit salad. It was so much fun spending time with our friends, while enjoying the fabulous food. What a treat to have someone else cook us brunch! I loved the Summer Peach Salad that my friend made so much, I decided to recreate it myself. This is the perfect go-to salad for all of your warm weather entertaining. With seasonal fresh peaches, pistachios, red onion and feta topped with an simple balsamic dressing, this salad is too good and too easy to make only once! While you’re thanking me all summer for this recipe, I’ll be thanking my friend.
