This peach salad recipe has quickly become my favorite as it’s not only super tasty but very satisfying too; blue cheese has this special “talent” of getting you hooked on it with the first bite!
The flavors in this salad with blue cheese blend together just perfectly! Who knew peach and blue cheese make such a great pair? I, for one, had no idea, but I’m now totally hooked on this peach and blue cheese salad. The blue cheese addition is the perfect tartness for the sweet peaches and not at all overpowering while the honey mustard sauce add just the right pinch of spiciness making this peach blue cheese salad the perfect summer side dish.
I also love the crunchiness firm peaches bring to this salad. And do I even have to mention the bright, eye-catching colors?
