Peaches are so ripe and juicy right now, the perfect time to make this easy, delicious arugula salad you can whip up in minutes! Topped with yellow bell peppers, walnuts and a simple balsamic vinaigrette.
Peach Arugula Salad
This peach arugula salad is perfect for a hot summer day. Other salads I love are Summer Tomato Salad, Chopped Wedge Salad and Grilled Peach and Watermelon Burrata Salad.
I’ve been waiting months to make this delicious salad from my friend Amie’s cookbook, Eating Clean. I finally got my hands on some beautiful ripe peaches from Frog Hollow Farms and set out to make this salad. Amie has struggled with chronic pain and multiple ailments including Lyme Disease for as long as I know her. She’s been healing her body with clean eating to help fight the inflammation and created this book to help others dealing with similar issues. If you’re looking for a food detox and you’re not sure how to start, this book is for you. Even if you don’t have health issues, this salad is healthy, fresh and delicious, run out and make it now!

I made this tonight and it was absolutely delicious! I will definitely be keeping this on a rotation!
Delicious! The peach and arugula work so nicely together.
I LOVE peaches in salad, but I never thought of pairing them with yellow bell peppers. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much for sharing this Gina! So grateful for you and hope you love my cookbook. Thank you for sharing my recipe. Love you! xoox
What would you recommend as a swap for someone with a nut allergy? I sometimes use sunflower seeds but they don’t quite seem to fit the bill in this case. Thanks!
What to do with the lemon zest? I don’t see it in the recipe! Love your recipes!
I tried this recipe last night and it was OK, everyone ate it by no rave reviews either. I think part of the problem was that the peaches I’d bought were a bit off texture, not sure I’d make again.
The peaches make the salad so if they aren’t sweet and juicy, I can see how that would happen.
Yum! I made a variation using watercress and nectarines. Red pepper instead of yellow for color contrast and cucumbers for crunch. It was fabulous!

Can I use canned peaches if the fresh ones aren’t sweet?
