Picking Ripe Peaches

There are three main signs you can look for to tell you if the peach is ripe and juicy:

  1. The more golden look to the peach the better. You should be looking for the peach to have a nice deep golden look to its’ yellows.
  2. You want your peaches to be soft when you squeeze them. Grab the peach and give it a very gentle squeeze. If there is a little give to it but not much you the peach is not quite ready to eat.
  3. Look for wrinkles. Sounds weird, but you want to look for wrinkles by the stem of the peach. Wrinkles mean that water has evaporated out of the peach leaving it with a greater peach flavor.

To Peel or Not to Peel

The texture and the taste of the skin, in my opinion, does not match well with the salad. Do yourself a favor and take a couple of minutes it takes to peel the peaches as it will make the best salad possible.

Adding a Protein

Yes, if desired, you can add a protein to this salad. I recommend using a simple chicken recipe like my Simple Grilled Chicken or my Quick Grilled Lemon Chicken Tenders. Both can be made on an outdoor grill, or indoors on the stovetop.
