DH, my cousin, and I enjoyed this gorgeous summer salad as a side to grilled pizzas last night. It was fantastic. Loved the combination of peaches and goat cheese and found the vinaigrette to be tangy and refreshing. The only change I made was to use all olive oil for the dressing since I was out of canola oil. I used a really good olive oil that I got as a gift. I will definitely be making this salad again and thought it worked particularly well with grilled pizza. Thanks, Jan. Made for ZWT7
