Champagne Peach Salad

I am sorry I have been MIA without explanation! I was in Texas all last week. I took my new business (CAbi) on the road and it was very successful with my friends and family. It was amazing to have the opportunity to visit home while having a fun time working. I didn't take my camera so I don't have very many photos. Here are a few from my iPhone.
First we visited Fort Worth. Here I am with cousin Melissa after church!
 We went back to our old stomping grounds at TCU and ate at a favorite hot spot, Fuzzy's Tacos!
We celebrated Mommasita's birthday one night!
 The boys always come up with fun games to play. Guess what they are shooting across the table....
 Yes a water bottle...needless to say they are never bored when visiting each other!
 J headed home to LA and my next stop was Odessa. Here is my sissy with our cousin's new puppy Tish.
 Watching Xfactor with my family, Good times!
 And baby Jensen! Isn't he the most adorable thing! He belongs are our sweet family friend and I LOVE him!
 Had to give you 1 more shot of him. 

Bye, Bye Summer! If you can get your hands on the last of the peaches, make this salad! The mix of the feta, almonds and peaches is delicious. If you can't find peaches, try it with apples for the fall!

For Salad:
Arugula or spring mix greens
2 Tbsp. feta
1/2 peach, sliced
2 Figs
3 Tbsp. roasted salted almonds, coarsely chopped

1 Tbsp. champagne vinegar
1.5 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp honey
salt and pepper

Slice figs and peaches.
Even though I buy roasted almonds, I like to toast them a little more. Toast in oven on 350 for 8 minutes. Remove, cool and chop coarsely.

Mix dressing ingredients, Toss with salad ingredients and serve immediately.

My mother-in-law sells Cabi so she's gotten me hooked. I love the half and half jacket from this season's collection! I wish I had a lot of money so I could buy more :)
