Sweet & Tangy Peach, Tomato & Blue Cheese Salad

Sweet & Tangy Peach, Tomato & Blue Cheese Salad

It’s finally warm out and it’s time to break out the summer salads. We found the first of the summer peaches this weekend and I wanted to make this recipe I remember finding in a magazine recently.

This salad makes my mouth super happy because of the combination of sweet and tangy and my body happy because it’s low-fat and gluten-free.

I found a great little pre-packaged mix of tri-colored heirloom tomatoes the same day so it was destiny that I make this. I love the mix of color from the orange, yellow and red heirlooms. It makes a very attractive looking salad. I would even top this with a grilled chicken breast if I was having this as a meal rather than a side.
