Summer is rolling quickly past us here in Los Angeles. I am a bit sad by it because the weather in Southern California is quite nice year round. It's hot where we live in the summer, but we can drive 20 minutes to be near the beach and have fabulous weather. I've been eating a lot of peaches for breakfast, raw or in smoothies this summer, but I thought what about in a salad? I've seen a few recipes that use nectarines and so I thought, why not, let's try it!
PEACH SALAD WITH PEPITAS
1 package arugula salad mix (spring mix or baby greens will works too)
1 organic cucumber (I made strips with my vegetable peeler to change it up)
1-2 organic roma tomatos, to your liking
1/4-1/2 chopped red onion to your liking (you can also use green onion)
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped (optional)
2 peaches, sliced
1/2 cup Pepitas, or more if you'd like
Creamy Cucumber Avocado Dressing - find the recipe HERE
Mix all the salad ingredients in a big bowl, plate, drizzle on the dressing and serve.
This salad is so refreshing!
I hope to do one more peach recipe tomorrow to get ready for the long weekend.
