How do you like to dress up your salads?

If you're like me, you add everything except the kitchen sink.  I love my salads with a variety of ingredients but I especially like using a homemade vinaigrette; vinaigrette is so simple to make at home and it's quick, as well as easy. 

My newest homemade vinaigrette recipe is a Fresh Peach concoction.  Slightly sweet and a little sour, the fresh peach flavors blend so well with a Herb salad mix.  Don't be afraid to experiment.  Some of the best recipes come from our kitchen inventions. 

  • Mixed Greens Salad with Fresh Peach Vinaigrette; At Home With Rebecka

1/4 cup rice vinegar

1 teaspoon green onion chopped white part only
1/2 juice from 1/2 lime
1 small ripe peach peeled and stone removed


Mix together first seven ingredients in a mason jar, cover with lid add shake until honey is dissolved, peel and pit fresh peach, cut peach into small pieces and place into a small food processor, pour vinaigrette over peaches and blend until smooth. Toss greens lightly with dressing. Add fresh sliced tomato wedges for added color and flavor.
