Green Bean & Peach Salad in a Maple Pecan Vinaigrette


I know I'm a little late with this one as August was National Peach Month, but at least I made it under the wire. Besides, you can still get fresh, juicy peaches through the end of September. I really enjoyed this salad as it had the perfect mix of crunchy and sweet.

On another note...
I'll be taking the next week off from the blog to spend the last week of summer with my family and get the kids ready for back to school. I'll still be around posting on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram so follow along to see what I'm up to. I'll be back with a new blog post September 9th as well as a new and improved Monthly Newsletter.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!
