  • 3 medium peaches, peeled and coarsely chopped (2 cups)
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans, toasted
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey mustard or Dijon-style honey mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil or vegetable oil
  • 5 cups mixed baby salad greens, mesclun, torn mixed salad greens or baby spinach leaves, coarsely chopped


  1. In a food processor, combine peaches, half of the pecans, the orange juice, vinegar, mustard and salt. Cover and process until smooth. With food processor running, slowly add oil in a thin, steady stream (vinaigrette will thicken as oil is added). Serve immediately or cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Stir vinaigrette before serving.
  2. In a large bowl, toss greens with 1/2 cup of the vinaigrette. Sprinkle with the remaining toasted nuts. Serve remaining vinaigrette on the side.
