Salad With Peaches and Pecans
October 15, 2012
My favorite fruit,after lemon, is the peach. I love it when stone fruit is in season. I have been waiting for the season commencement since the weather started to improve.
With the warm weather comes more entertaining so I have been pondering the creation of a new fresh weather salad to make for BBQ’s and visiting friends this year.
The salad I have created has the sweet caramel flavor of grilled peach with a zing and some crunch – enter pecans, mint from my garden and some lime.
I’m a Pecan Fan, I enjoy cooking with them for the myriad of health benefits and because they are equally suited to sweet or savory dishes. They are the one nut that I have on hand in my pantry (or fridge) at all times for these reasons – as well as obviously enjoying the taste.
The recipe below is what I came up with for my new fresh salad. If you invite me to your place for a BBQ in the coming months, this is what I am bringing along. It is simple to make and has a nice combination of flavor and textural contrasts.
Are you a Pecan Fan? Have you tried using them in a savory dish? I would love to hear from you via the comments below.
