Reviews for Spinach & Bacon Salad with Peaches
"I thought this was a fresh-tasting change in spinach salads. I made it for a church picnic and got a lot of compliments. I agree with pdarwin that the ingredients complimented each other. I definitely recommend this salad."
"Okay but nothing special. The peaches add nothing."
"What a pretty and healthy tasty salad!! The dressing was light and delicious tasting. I did add a tad more of vinegar since I like a little tang to my dressing. I was a little skeptical of the peaches with the onions and bacon, but it was delicious. They all complimented each other. I did not have a red onion so I substituted a couple of diced green onions. To my chagrin I also realized I did not have any almonds so I made some candied pecans to go in it instead. I would definitely recommend for you to try this salad.Volunteer Field Editor since 2013"
