Summer Salad with Goji Berries and Poppy Peach Vinaigrette

Labels: { , } | © 2014 | | © 2014 |

This fresh, colourful summer salad with a vibrant fruity vinaigrette is quick and easy, and the perfect way to enjoy all the produce that's in season now. Antioxidant-rich goji berries add a note of exotic sweetness to this light summery salad. If goji berries aren't your thing, you can always swap them out for dried cranberries or cherries.

Poppy Peach VinaigretteSalad
  • 3 Ripe peaches
  • 3 tbsp White balsamic
  • 1 tsp Truffle mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp Poppy seeds
  • 150 g Mixed Asian salad leaves
  • 6 Cherry radishes, thinly sliced
  • 2 Ripe but firm peaches
  • 1 tbsp Goji berries
  1. To prepare the dressing. Peel and pit the peaches. Cut the peaches into chunks and place in a blender with the white balsamic, truffle mustard, salt and olive oil. Whirl until smooth. Stir in poppy seeds.
  2. Pile the mixed salad leaves, cherry radishes and peaches on two serving plates. Scatter the goji berries over. Drizzle the salad with dressing and toss gently to coat. | © 2014 |
