Spinach Salads – Spinach & Peach Salad with Candied Walnuts
This salad is perfect for these hot days as it is very refreshing and satisfying as well. It is also very easy to make. You should have a great meal ready in 20 minutes.
You are going to need the following:
12 oz. baby spinach leaves
2 white peaches, peeled (1 1/2 cut into thin strips – reserve the other 1/2 for the dressing)
1/2 small red onion, sliced
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
FOR THE DRESSING:
1 lime, juiced
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup white vinegar
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
The remaining 1/2 white peach mashed
Place the walnuts and the granulated sugar in a large skillet.
Cook, on medium heat, shaking the pan until the sugar is melted and the walnuts are coated evenly. Be careful not to burn the nuts as they will burn very quickly. Keep a close eye on your pan. You should be done in 5 to 7 minutes. Cool completely.
Whisk together the lime juice with the oil and vinegar. Whisk in the sugar and the mashed peaches until you have a smooth dressing.
Place the spinach, onions and peaches in a bowl. Add the walnuts. Drizzle with the dressing and toss well. Serve sprinkled with crumbled blue cheese.
