Chicken Salad with Peaches

This is a simple salad I made for an afternoon on our boat.
The flavor combination was one we really enjoyed.

When fresh peaches are no longer available,
you could substitute mango, papaya, canned mandarin oranges or nectarines.
  • 4 cups fresh lettuce, torn into bite sized pieces (romaine, leaf or a mix of greens)
  • 1 celery stalk, sliced
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion or fresh green onions
  • 1 bell pepper cut into chunks ( I used half a red pepper and half a yellow)
  • 1-2 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted and cut into chunks
  • 1 small tomato, seeded and cut into chunks (optional)
  • 1 small cooked chicken breast (per person), preferably grilled and chilled, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • Ranch Dressing or Buttermilk Herb Dressing 
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped cashews.
  1. Layer all ingredients in order on individual plates and serve.
  2. Pass extra dressing. Serves 2-3 people


  1. I love salads with fruit in them - especially with firm, juicy fruit, like peaches. Plums are also nice :). And spinach instead of lettuce.

  2. Oh, this looks good. I love salads of all kind. JB

  3. first of all....I would like to be sitting 'right there' eating that salad...sheesh! It looks like the right place to eat such a delightful salad!

  4. This looks like my kind of salad, Bev! Do I also see deviled eggs on the plate? Perfect meal ... nice setting there!

  5. I want to be on your boat looking at those mountains eating that salad! I just found your blog when doing a search for crabapple butter recipes. I just love it!
