Juicy Peach and Super Greens Salad with Fennel and Walnut Oil Dressing

It’s summer and stone fruit season is here! Peaches, apricots, plums, pluots, nectarines and cherries are all so delicious in the summertime; you know summer is here when we see all these fruits piled up high at the farmer’s market.

One of the many ways to use juicy stone fruits is to toss them in a salad. I had a delicious salad that my friend Rose had made with ripe peaches and a walnut oil dressing that was sweet, tangy, and yummy 😋. Give this salad a try with juicy peaches this summer!
