Top Review by Sydney Mike

Made this easily enough with some chopped, baked chicken breast that I had in the freezer, & didn't peel the peaches since we like the peel of most fruits! This salad came together very quickly & made for a very enjoyable lunch! Many thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]

Directions

  1. Peel the peaches: this is easier if you blanch them first by putting them in a pan of simmering water for a minute. (If you use nectarines, it is unnecessary to peel them).
  2. In a medium salad bowl, whisk together the oil and vinegar. Add the chicken, peaches, hazelnuts and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Add the spinach leaves and toss again. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve immediately, or refrigerate for up to a day; it gets better as it sits. Remove from the fridge half an hour before eating.
