      LOVED, loved, loved this salad. I used nectarines in place of peaches and romaine lettuce, olive oil and used all other ingredients. The raspberry vinegar is a must as is the mint and goat cheese. Do not leave them out! This is company and everyday worthy, love it! Thanks for sharing Inge.

      What a deliciously refreshing salad. Used local fresh peaches, added basil and mint fresh from the garden. I will definitely be making this yummy salad again! Thanks Inge for a great addition to our "favourites" file.

      Throughout dinner, I must have said "I *really* like this salad!" about 6 times. This was just amazing! I used spring mix instead of romaine, left out the mint and cheese, and I did use the toasted walnuts. I used frozen peaches and probably had the equivalent of 2 peaches instead of 1. I had pureed basil in the freezer from last summer, so I mixed my basil in with the dressing. All the flavors just blended together so well--I really love this! Thanks for posting!
