OK yall, I have a confession. I have adopted a “bad” habit.

And it involves SweetGreen Salad. It’s this amazing chopped salad place in New York City, and there’s a shop literally on my way home from errands.

And recently, I’ve been going there 3-4 times a week for…wait for it…their peach salads.

UUUGHHHH. You guys it is SO GOOD. Peaches are at their peak right now in August and they just SHINE in that salad.

But it is such an expensive habit….

But it is so yummyyyyyyyyyyy.

They chop up all the ingredients, and toss them all together with their delicious dressings. And it’s just way too dang easy and way too delicious. Especially because it’s all gluten free and you can find amazing Specific Carb Diet legal options.

Well. My pocketbook convinced me that I need to start learning how to recreate this salad from my own dang kitchen. Sure, it won’t be as quick and easy, but I was sure I could make something equally as flavorful and delicious.

And BOY WAS I CORRECT!

My Perfectly Peach Salad Salad!

And if you’re smiling reading that…good! Because this salad will make you smile too!

Eat it for lunch, top it with a protein and have it for dinner! Whatever you do — JUST MAKE IT AND BASK IN THE BLISS THAT ARE SUMMER PEACHES!

**Oh yeah, and one other amazing thing, is that since this is a hearty salsa-of-sorts, the leftovers are incredibly versatile! You can top a filet of cod or sea bass with it, or throw some shrimp on the barbie and serve them with this salsa and some corn chips! You can add it to summer gazpacho soup, serve it with tortilla chips, add it to a hummus wrap, serve it over quinoa, add some black beans and serve it with brown rice — the sky is the limit!

Alright — onto the recipe!

I served mine as a salad with roasted asparagus. And now, I know you’re probably scratching your head, thinking…peaches and asparagus!? But trust me, my friends — it’s totally amazing and not weird at all! haha

Ingredients (Serves 1)

1/2 bundle of asparagus
1 Romaine heart, chopped

Peach Salsa:
1 ripe peach, diced
1/2 tomato, seeded and diced
1/2 red pepper, diced
2-3 Tbsp red onion, finely minced
1/4 avocado, diced
2-3 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
juice of one lime
1 Tbsp EVOO
Salt and pepper
Green onion, sliced (Garnish)

Lime Vinaigrette Dressing:
Juice of 1 lime
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
salt
pepper

Tools:
Baking sheet
Tinfoil (I use nonstick and it’s a game changer)
Good chef’s knife (Here’s the one I use and love)
Medium mixing bowl
Small mixing bowl
Whisk

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place your asparagus spears on a tinfoil-lined, olive oil-sprayed baking sheet. Spritz them with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, make your salsa by combining all the ingredients in a small-to-medium sized bowl. Refrigerate until serving. You can make the dice as small or as large as you like. I like more substantial pieces, but it’s totally up to you!

Also, combine your dressing in a small mixing bowl. Set aside.

Plate by topping your romaine with the asparagus and salsa, and drizzle with the lime vinaigrette. Garnish with any extra cilantro and green onions!

This salad was so wonderful! It was fresh and crunchy, and sweet and everything you’re looking for in a summer salad!

I can’t explain why, but the combination of the earthy asparagus with the sweet and succulently juicy peaches were out of this world! And the cilantro and lime took it over the top!

And the textures were outrageous! The cold, crunchy salsa with with warm, chewy asparagus was just delightful! And the buttery avocado brought it all together!

Finally, the colors were just stunning. I mean, the dish just screamed “Summer!”

  2. Looks delicious. My new assistant teacher told me about her sister’s struggle with IBS and that her sister might have to have surgery in the future. I told her about you and your blog and how the Specific Carb diet helped you. I gave her the link to your blog

    1. Thanks so much! oh gosh, i’m so sorry to hear that — yes! I’m glad you passed along my inforamation. I almost had to get the surgery too, and tried the SCD as a last ditch effort, and look where it got me!! 7 YEARS REMISSION, MEDICATION FREE!! God is so good. Will be praying for her! hugs xo

    1. lol, gosh, I have no idea Amanda! I guess that’s just how God made me! thanks for stopping by! big hugs xox

  3. They set up a sweetgreen outpost where I work, and I’ve been ordering it every day. I’m an accountant, so of course I know there are better ways I could be spending my money, but one problem at a time. Sweetgreen is healthier than what I was eating before.

    Their fruit-in-the-salad’s are amazing. When I first had sweetgreen I had one of their seasonal salads that was something like peaches, goat cheese, vinagrette, salady things. I was totally skeptical on purchase, totally a believer by the last bite.

    1. Oh that’s awesome! Yeah healthy choices are worth the extra $ in the long run! Ugh their seasonal salads are amazinggggggggg. Hahaha yeah mine was not SponCon either! Just genuine love Hugs and love xox

  4. That salad looks so yummy. I love the combination of my favorite things including peaches and asparagus. You have the best recipes and your presentation is always stunning. Thank you for equipping and educating the masses.

  5. Yes!! Yummy! We have a peach tree outback with rip peaches right now so I’m gaga over them!!! And I made lots of peach salads last year and ready for them again this year! I’ll have to try your recipe

  6. Carolyn, If I was your age and lived in New York I would totally be the friend who was at your house for random things at dinner times in hopes you offered for me to stay and enjoy a meal. I’d be like, “Oh yeah… a know I could have called but I was in the neighborhood. Wow, that smells so good. Do you need any help chopping those veggies?” Lol

    1. hahaha oh gosh I’m sorry Ian! Yeah peaches are like little gifts from Above! hehe hugs xox

  7. Hey Care, I always LOVE, LOVE, LOVE trying out all your recipes. Veggie soup (well, you put in chicken or turkey) now has competition. A cookbook series is definitely something you should work on with many volumes.
    I tried this recipe and it was DIVINE! Thank you for sharing it. The only thing I did differently was since I live in sunny California, we barbecue year-round so I grilled the asparagus along with grilling Romain head lettuce before chopping. Grilling the lettuce pulls out amazing flavors. So thank you.
    Praying you’re having a blast on your girls annual vaycay. Hugs, Beautiful!

    1. Oh my gosh Tammy, that brings my heart so much joy! I’m so glad!! And gosh you’re kind to say that. 🙂 And ooooh — yes! I love grilled romaine! I’m actually working on a grilled romaine recipe right now!! Thanks for your prayers! big hugs xo
