Summer is winding down …. it is such a bummer. Kids across the country are starting to go back to school. Soon enough, bloggyland will be in a pumpkin explosion … believe me, you can count on that.
Don’t get me wrong, I love pumpkin everything and Fall is fun – I’m just not ready for Summer to end just yet. Living in Phoenix, we get to experience Summer-like weather a bit longer than most – and that makes me happy! It’s also one of the many reasons I love living here! 🙂
I couldn’t let Summer pass without sharing one of my favorite Summer salads. If you know me, then you know I love peaches. They are by far, my favorite fruit! Although mostly we just enjoy eating them as they are, I love to make a few salads and cobblers during peach season too!
This Peach and Raspberry Chicken Salad combines some of my very favorite things – and I feel good feeding this to my family. It’s healthy and light enough for a Summer dinner. Enjoy!

1 large peach, pitted and cut into quarters
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. lemon juice
3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
⅓ cup vegetable oil
Divide the salad ingredients between four plates.
