White Peach and Basil Salad with Orange Honey Champagne Vinaigrette

This is another quick summer salad recipe. White peaches are my favorite: they’re sweeter than regular peaches and have a firmer texture.  You can substitute the delicate champagne vinegar with a little bit of white wine vinegar, rice vinegar, raspberry vinegar, or apple cider vinegar (all of which are not as mild as champagne vinegar, so use less).

 

Time: 10 minutes

Serves 1

 

Salad

  • 1 white peach, diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 bunch of salad greens

 ORANGE HONEY CHAMPAGNE VINAIGRETTE

  • Juice of ½ orange
  • 1 tbsp champagne vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 4 tbsp good quality extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

 

1. Whisk the vinaigrette.

2. Toss the salad with the vinaigrette.

Happy Eating!
