I enjoyed this tasty salad for dinner tonight. I loved the blending of fresh sweet peaches, sharp & salty prosciutto, tangy and tart dressing mixed with the fresh crisp baby spinach, green onions and pinenuts (which I forgot to toast). I will be making this salad again soon. Thanks Anna for another winner.

What a delicious combination of flavors!! This recipe is wonderful!!!! I love toasted pine nuts and they give the peaches and peach dressing a fabulous savory balance. I used canned peaches with no syrup because my store had terrible peaches. I used cider vinegar and grapeseed oil. I used thinly sliced ham instead of prosciutto. This salad is soooooooo good. Will definitely make this one again and again. Thank you for such a gourmet yet simple salad!!!!!!!!
