Peach and Escarole Salad

Peach and Escarole Salad

"One trick with escarole is to make sure you are using a sweet enough dressing to offset the bitterness. I accomplished that with a dressing of sherry and rice vinegar, and then, just to hedge my bets, I added some perfectly ripe peaches to the mix. The result was one of the best salads I've had in years."

This is amazing! I have to admit, I didn't have escarole so I used spring mix and fresh spinach. Also subbed sherry cooking wine for sherry vinegar, because I had it on hand. Soooo good!

Loved it, but all escarole was a bit much. I did 1/2 spring mix. Toasted pecans worked too. Great summer salad, and beautiful!

Used curly endive (frisée) since store was out of escarole. Liking the use of different greens for salads, getting tired of spring mix and romaine.

Didn't have the sherry vinegar - so substituted Bordeau Cherry Balsamic Vinegar. Didn't have peaches, so substituted strawberries. Delicious!
