Lovers of sweet + savory + unconventional salads raise your hands! {me!me!} Here I am, with yet another of these of recipes I’m in love with but not sure you’ll be excited about! Typical me. Can you feel you too are going to love this salad? Not sure? Let me help you with that. First we have: peaches. Or nectarines to be more accurate. You do love these summery juicy fruits, don’t you? Great. Phase one of the salad love project  => done. Moving on to the cheese. Gorgonzola piccante cheese.

Gorgonzola piccante is a creamy and sharp Italian cheese. Heavenly. Think blue cheese’s top of the class.  If you usually like blue cheese, then you’ll love this one. Phase two of the salad love project => done. Now, let’s put one and one together and state the obvious: you’re going to give this salad two thumbs up because it’s basically blue cheese and peaches and you love these two ingredients. And no, I swear it’s not weird to eat them together/ at the same time/ in the same plate. The peach’s sweetness balances perfectly the cheese sharpness. Your taste buds will totally thank you. 🙂 Let’s go grab a fork, the recipe is just below!
