Peach Arugula Salad

I’m on a peach kick right now and obsessed with adding fresh ripe peaches in my salads. This peach arugula salad is the perfect for a light summer lunch or dinner or serve for brunch. Juicy peaches pair nicely with bitter arugula, creamy goat cheese and candied nuts. Scroll down for my Peach Arugula Salad Recipe.
