Hearty Spinach Salad with Fresh Peaches

Spinach Salad with Fresh Peaches on a plate with fork

Sweet summer peaches combined with fresh young crisp spinach leaves set the stage for the additions of bacon, gorgonzola, and toasted pecans. A salad with lots of textures that work so well together! 

4-6 Servings



To make the dressing, add together the More Than Olives Blood Orange Olive Oil and the More Than Olives Fig Balsamic into a small jar or plastic container with a lid. Add in the Sea Salt and Ground Pepper.  Shake to combine the ingredients and set aside.

You can lightly toast the pecans in a frying pan or in the oven. Add the More Than Olives Arbosana “Organic” Olive Oil to the nuts and stir. Give them a light dusting of sea salt. Watch them closely, nuts will quickly burn if not attended to. This process just takes a few minutes. Let them cool before adding to the salad. 

Cook your bacon and let it rest. Prepare the spinach, peaches, and cucumbers and set them into a large salad bowl. When the bacon has cooled, crumble it and add it to the salad bowl.

Gently toss the salad, to mix the ingredients. Shake your dressing once again to reincorporate the Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. Pour the dressing onto the salad and gently toss again. 

Transfer the salad onto a platter or into individual serving bowls. Sprinkle the Gorgonzola cheese and toasted pecans over the salad and serve immediately. 

You can get creative with this salad and use other More Than Olives Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars for the dressing.  Other flavors to consider: Meyer Lemon, Basil, or Picual Olive Oil. Peach, Cranberry Pear, or Blackberry Balsamic Vinegars

More Than Olives

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
Jennifer Pearson

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
