Magical Peach Arugula Salad
By Amie Valpone

Serves 6 to 8

Here’s a dish that provides a big payoff for very little effort. It takes about five minutes to throw this salad together, and the combination of peppers, peaches, and arugula is simply beautiful. Serve it in a wide bowl to show off its good looks.


  • 10 cups arugula
  • 5 medium ripe peaches, pitted and diced
  • 2 yellow or orange bell peppers, diced
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped raw walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

In a large bowl, combine the arugula, peaches, bell peppers, and walnuts.

In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper.

Drizzle the dressing over the arugula mixture, toss, and serve.

Enjoy it!
