Usually, my go-to is arugula for the fact that it tends to stay fresh longer in my fridge. I find that other leafy greens will go bad if I buy too big a batch.
However, this week I was craving spinach and picked up some fresh leafy greens to make a veggie salad. I combined organic Jersey peaches that were nice and ripe. Peaches are a great addition to make your salad a little sweeter and give it some natural color enhancement.
