Feta Cheese Makes Summer Salads Pop

Summer salads are all about incorporating the freshest seasonal produce, especially berries and stone fruit. We like to balance out their sweetness with bits of feta cheese, which add back in a briny, salty 1-2 punch. 

FreshDirect’s authentic Greek feta is perfect for the task, with its crumbly texture and fresh, salty, milky taste. It provides the right amount of savory flavor to contrast with summer fruits at their ripest.

Summer Salad with Feta and Peaches

What You’ll Need:
1/3 cup pecans
4 oz mixed spring greens
2 ripe peaches, thinly sliced
2 oz feta, crumbled
Extra virgin olive oil
White wine vinegar
Salt & pepper

What To Do:
In a small, dry skillet, toast pecans over medium heat until fragrant and slightly darker, 4-5 minutes.

Wash and dry spring greens, then place in a large mixing bowl. Add sliced peaches and feta.

In a smaller bowl, whisk a few glugs of olive oil, a splash of white wine vinegar, a drizzle of honey, and salt and pepper to taste.

Add as much dressing as you like to the large bowl and toss everything together. Sprinkle toasted pecans on top before serving.
