Have you been craving a giant salad?

Well, you’re going to LOVE this peach feta salad that’s tossed in a basil peach vinaigrette.

It’s sweet, savory, and the perfect use for summer peaches.

In the dressing, I used fresh pureed peaches paired with the basil to give you even more summer flavor.

I can happily eat salad for dinner and this is one of those salads I crave for a meal!

This version is served meatless but it does pair nicely with grilled chicken, shrimp, and even salmon!

Ingredients to make Peach Feta Salad.

Ingredients for peach feta salad

  • Baby arugula – Arugula (also called Rocket) is one of my favorite salad greens. It’s peppery in flavor and works so well in a salad, on burgers, and even in pesto!
  • Red onion – Red onion brings a light onion flavor without too much overpowering “onion” flavor. You can soak them in ice water before putting them on the salad to remove even more of the onion flavor.
  • Crumbed feta – Feta is a great option for this salad and brings a nice burst of dairy creaminess and salty flavor. If you don’t have feta on hand goat cheese is another great option.
  • Toasted pecans – I love toasted nuts on a salad and pecans are a great choice for this salad. If you want even more flavor try making Praline Pecans for added sweetness!
  • Sliced peaches – Fresh summer peaches are the best and you’ll want to use nice juicy ripe ones for added sweetness and optimal flavor. Nectarines are a good choice too.
  • Peach basil vinaigrette – This homemade dressing is PERFECT for summer! I add honey for extra sweetness but the exact flavor of the dressing can change depending on the sweetness of the peaches. Feel free to adjust.

Making this peach feta salad in advance

I recommend making it the day that you plan to eat it for the best results. 

The peaches can make the arugula soggy if you make it too far in advance.  

But if you do wish to make it in advance, I recommend only assembling the dry ingredients up to three days ahead of time. Then add the peaches on the day you plan to serve the salad. 

You can make the dressing ahead of time but store it in the fridge and do not add it to the salad until serving.

Wonderful! Just as good with goat cheese as with feta. You can simplify making the dressing by throwing peach slices and the rest of the ingredients into a smoothie blender. Turns out great!
