Salt and pepper to taste

3 cups mixed greens

2 tablespoons crumbled Maytag blue cheese

2 tablespoons toasted pecans, chopped

2 tablespoons raisins or currants

Half of a peach, sliced, for garnish


Mix the vinegar and the peach juice together in a small bowl. Whisk in the lemon olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Combine the greens, blue cheese, pecans, raisins, and diced peaches in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad; toss gently until the ingredients are evenly dispersed. Divide the salad among chilled salad plates. Garnish with peach slices.
