Glazed peaches add sparkle to a green salad. Photo courtesy California Pizza Kitchen.
We brought home an armful of the domestic peaches now in the market, and then set about using them. Beyond snacks, we’ve been grilling them and serving them with main courses of chicken and fish.
Then, we recalled this delicious salad from California Pizza Kitchen, and made one for lunch.
The ingredients listed on the company website include field greens, spinach, warm caramelized peaches, cranberries, red onions, toasted pecans and Gorgonzola cheese, tossed in a white balsamic vinaigrette.
If you don’t want to glaze the peaches (sauté in butter and sugar), you can grill them.
*We actually prefer the flavor of regular balsamic vinegar. It imparts a brown color to the cheese, but that doesn’t bother us.
