Bitter Greens Salad with Peaches + Goat Cheese

Growing up in Michigan my family was more meat and potato than healthful salad but each summer this healthy salad recipe made its much-anticipated return to our dinner table. It’s a simple salad that follows one of the essential formulas for great salads: tossing bitter greens with sweet fruit, crunchy toasted nuts and salty cheese. Melons are a good alternative to the stone fruit later in the summer or try dried apricots during the winter months.
