Thanks, Kree for a light refreshing salad! I made it for dinner last night, as my husband and I are on a low carb diet and it was so good--I had peaches, but next time I will try another fruit just for variety. I think the walnuts add a nice touch, too. Carole in Orlando

We liked this salad, but would probably give it 4 stars. Since I made some changes, I will not rate it this time, until I can make it exactly as written. This was good, and very easy to make. I used 1 large deliciously fresh peach, almost the size of a croquet ball, cut into bite-sized pieces. And since I didn't have poppy seed dressing, I used a combination of Marzetti's Pomegranate Vinaigrette and Wishbone's Balsamic and Basil Vinaigrette. This was yummy, and I will definitely try this again. TY, Kree, for putting this out there for our enjoyment!
