Southern Peach Salad with Green Goddess Dressing

70

My Southern Peach Salad with Green Goddess Dressing is the salad of the summer! This fresh mixture is bursting with flavor and a variety of textures, thanks to the sweet and juicy peaches, crunchy pecans, tangy blue cheese, and creamy avocado. Top it all off with a easy fresh herb dressing, and you’ll never want another mediocre iceberg wedge again!
