Green Salad with Peaches, Feta & Mint Vinaigrette
To prepare vinaigrette: Combine chopped mint and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Let steep for about 10 minutes. Strain into a large bowl, pressing on the leaves to extract all the liquid. (You should have about 3 tablespoons liquid after straining.) Add oil, vinegar, honey and 1/2 teaspoon salt; whisk until well combined.Advertisement
To prepare salad: Add greens and slivered mint to the bowl with the vinaigrette and sprinkle with salt. Add peaches (or nectarines) and almonds; gently toss to combine. Serve the salad topped with feta (or goat cheese).
