Summer Peach Salad

I look forward to the day when you walk into a grocery store and peaches are on sale. I end up buying so many that peaches are part of every meal in order to eat them all before they spoil. This is an easy, versatile salad and a delicious way to say goodbye to summer.

3-4 large peaches, sliced
3-4 tomatoes, chopped and seeded
salad greens
mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup nuts

Fruity Vinaigrette
1/4 cup orange juice
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp mustard
2 tsp honey
1/8 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp poppy seeds

Chop up lettuce or other salad greens and put in a large bowl. Chop peaches and tomatoes, and add them to the bowl and toss. Grate mozzarella on top and garnish with nuts. Mix vinaigrette ingredients together in a small bowl and serve on the side.
