Peaches + green salad = ?
I need to prepare a largish salad and I want to use peaches and gorgonzola. Any ideas about other ingredients? Sliced radishes?
Some online recipes talk about grilling the peaches, which sounds divine, but that won't work in this case. I might wait to add the peaches until right before serving though.
I would probably use a light vinaigrette made with perhaps a fruit vinegar. (Not cider vinegar.) I could of course add the gorgonzola to the salad dressing.
I could add nuts to the salad, but I wonder about an unexpected ingredient. Any ideas?
Something crispy/crunchy, like jicama or kohlrabi.
If you do nuts, maybe slivered almonds.
I wouldn't do a fruity dressing, rather, something simple and clean, like a champagne vinaigrette to let the ingredients shine.
Most would choose toasted walnuts to go with the salad ingredients you have so far; however, I'm of the mind that pecans go better with peaches and I'd use them instead. As far as the dressing, if you have some peach jam, I'd use it to make it a fruity vinaigrette using champagne or white wine vinegar. I agree with your thought to add the peaches just before serving, especially as you're not grilling them.
