What a lovely and delicious salad. I'm anxious to try it again as I had pears on hand and used them instead of the peaches. I did add a tad more maple syrup to the dressing and served with a crusty bread. Will make again just as soon as the fresh peaches arrive in the stores.
Roast Chicken Salad with Peaches, Goat Cheese, and Pecans
Fresh peaches and goat cheese headline this simple no-cook salad recipe. The 8-ingredient vinaigrette, made with pantry staples, takes minutes to make and is a delicious complement to the other ingredients in the salad. Use a store-bought rotisserie chicken to save time in the kitchen. Serve with herbed bread.
