PEACH QUINOA SALAD

July 16, 2018

WE ARE AT PEAK SUMMER. It’s really rocking my world how much the produce at my local grocery stop is, well, rocking. I am more and more convinced that although grocers a little bit know no seasons, your personal kitchen benefits from cooking in sync with the calendar. Hear me when I say I’m no produce elitist.

I buy non-organic more often than not. But, the flavor and quality of even something as simple as the pre-packaged bag of carrots I bought last week is far from the bag of water-y, tasteless carrots I bought in december.

Thus salads have become my routine because I’m loving summer and kind of not wanting to think about winter produce right now. For midwesterners that is a long six months with a short list of fresh options. But I won’t be sad because I love autumn cooking and winter baking. And peach salad for today!

    This looks yummy and is making me salivate, must be lunchtime. I gotta see what ingredients I have and what I have to go out of my house to buy.

    This looks delicious! Can it be made ahead and served cold or is it better at room temperature or can you make everything and then toss dressing right before you use it? Thanks!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Thanks Claire! It’s great cold or served right away.
