Pistachio Peach Salad with Honey Vinaigrette

This is the summery mix I made last week for Mom. Since then, it has quickly become my new favorite salad. Sweet ripe peaches, grilled chicken, salty pistachios, creamy goat cheese, and a homemade honey vinaigrette. Enjoy!

    Andie, first off I love the meal plan you have put your mom on…I am using it as well!!! (Love it) I have a question…if your mother was exercising would she be eating more calories? I get confused with this. The calorie calculator tells me to eat round 1400 – 1500 calories to lose weight, however I am exercising as well. Thank you!

    I just started reading your blog and I love it! I went to your archives to start reading from the beginning but I noticed the oldest post from June 2010 says, “If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time”, does this mean there are older blog posts somewhere that aren’t archived here? Are they still available to read?

    Hi! New reader :) I can’t stand Goat’s cheese, is there something else that would work well in this? Maybe feta?? Thanks :)

      Hey Emma! Yes, feta would be a perfect swap for the goat cheese, and the nutritional profile for both cheeses are almost identical so the nutrition information remains nearly the same.

    I made this delicious salad for dinner last night, and it was so good that I am going to have it again this evening. Great combination of flavours.
    I didn’t have any apple cider vinegar so I used White Balsamic Vinegar from Trader Joe’s, and it was amazing.
    My new favourite salad!

    What a great lunch idea. I’m a big fan of salads – and pistachios. This is both easy to make and looks delicious. Fresh peaches are almost ready in our area, so will be trying this in the next 2 weeks.
