Since we made the decision to eat more locally produced foods, we found some fresh locally grown peaches at a farm stand in town. They were those kind of peaches you can only get in summer, that are so juicy that they drip down to your elbows when you trying to eat them. The kind that are so good you want to eat two. I bought a small basket of them and took them home. There weren’t enough to make a pie, so I did the next bext thing. I put them in a chef salad.
After I made that home made mayonaise yesterday, I decided to use some of it to make this delicious salad for dinner. There was some leftover chicken salad that I chopped up, added some of our favorite seasonings and the home made mayonaise. To put this together, here is what we used:
Georgia Summer Chicken Salad Recipe
1 cup of your favorite chicken salad
2 cups torn romaine lettuce
2 medium fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
1 medium tomato, sliced into wedges
2 boiled eggs, cut into slices or wedges
2 ounces colby cheese, cut into strips
salt and pepper to taste
Honey Mustard Dressing
Place a layer of lettuce on each plate. Add a scoop of chicken salad. Top with peaches, tomatoes, eggs and cheese. Serve with home made Honey Mustard Dressing.
My husband loved this salad with fresh juicy peaches and tomatoes. I think you will too. Have you ever used fruit in your tossed salads?
