This was delicious and the peaches and goat cheese make it, although this recipe makes a ton, so unless you're having a lot of people, you may want to half it. I made it just as written though I peeled my peaches.
This salad was amazing. I didn't have peaches the first time I made it and it was still quite good. My friends have all loved it and asked for the recipe and it has been a huge hit in their circles too. A real keeper!
