"This was delish. I loved the bacon in it. I added candied pecans and a bit or Gorgonzola it went perfect with grilled pork chops."

"I did not think I would like the dressing as it was a vinegar and oil with a blended peaches added. It reminded me of a salad you would order in a restaurant and pay 10.00 or more for. I did not have bacon so I did not put that in. It was a great salad. So for those who like peaches Enjoy"
