This hearty end of summer peach and kale salad is filled with caramelized peaches and crispy fried onions.
I’m taking a little time off to adjust to life with a newborn, but I have some super talented guest posters stopping in over the next couple of weeks that you are going to love. Next up is Lexi from Lexi's Clean Kitchen sharing her new favorite salad filled with fresh peaches, kale and crispy onions.
Hi all! I'm Lexi from over at Lexi's Clean Kitchen, and I am SO excited to be here guest posting for Sylvie while she takes time off to be with her little sweet baby girl!
Today's recipe is hands down one of my new favorites. See, while some people are moving towards Fall recipes already, I'm still sitting here in the heat, with TONS of fresh peaches and fresh kale and onions from my local CSA.
I love this peach and kale salad. The sweet caramelized peaches with the crunch of the crispy onions is just such a wonderful combination! I also love that it is so flavorful that it pairs with any simple dressing!
