Five Minute Summer Spinach Salad with Peaches and Mozzarella

A lot of people hate on putting fruit in a salad. My opinion? There is a time and place for everything and, in the summer, fruit sure as hell belongs in salads. There is no quicker dish to serve alongside a summer BBQ than this spinach salad with peaches and mozzarella. When you are so hot you cannot fathom standing in front of the grill or stove for another second and you quickly realize you have not eaten a fruit or vegetable all weekend, this salad will be your savior. Quickly grab all of the ingredients out of the fridge, cut, arrange in an aesthetically pleasing manner, and serve to your guests.

  • Spinach (1 large bag)

  • Peaches (3)

  • Mozzarella (1 package)
