This peach and feta salad is the ultimate sweet and savory combination. An ode to late summer with fresh peaches, avocado, kale and more. You can use Kale or arugula for your greens in this salad. Peaches are delicious this time of year and you can eat them plain or enjoy them in several different meals. This is one of my favorite more savory dishes to enjoy peaches with.

Why Make This Peach Salad With Feta

This peach salad is a great combination of sweet, salty and savory. There are so many great textures between the quinoa, leafy kale and creamy avocado. The sweet balsamic reduction brings all the flavors together perfectly. This salad takes about 15 minutes to make and can serve as a side or main dish. I like to top it with salmon occasionally but for the most part, it’s perfect on it’s own.
