This was delicious, if a little dry. Next time I make it I'll increase the amount of dressing. I substituted the peaches with apricots and the cashews with pine nuts. (I didn't shop for the recipe - spur of the moment decision). It was different and really good. Just be prepared to increase the amount of dressing if you feel you need to. Thanks Derf.
