Peach (or Nectarine) Chicken Salad

It's what's for dinner! Or lunch! This simple salad is light and refreshing, great for a summer meal. It's low in fat, but very satisfying.

I've made this for many friends this summer - and have been asked for the recipe - so here you go.

Peach (or Nectarine) Chicken Salad (serves 4)


  • 1 lb. cubed cooked chicken
  • About 3 fresh peaches or nectarines, peeled and cubed
  • 1 medium cucumber (I like English), seeded and chopped
  • 3 Tbs. finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 lb string beans, cut into 1" pieces, and steamed lightly.

Mint Vinaigrette:

  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper

  1. In a large bowl, combine the peaches, chicken, cucumber, string beans, and onion; set aside
  2. In a blender combine the vinegar, lemon juice, honey, mint, salt and pepper. Process until smooth. Adjust the flavor to taste.
  3. Pour over chicken mixture and toss to coat.
  4. Optionally, cover and refrigerate to chill.
  5. Serve over chopped lettuce.

It's especially good with a sprinkle of feta cheese. Enjoy!

P.S. those are apricot halves with a couple of blueberries, just for fun.
