Peach Salad with Almonds

Let me first start off by apologizing for my lack of recipe posts in the last little while. Greg and I have both uprooted our home computers to take up residence in our new office space. FINALLY! However, we no longer have a computer at home for the next undetermined amount of time. How uncivilized, I know. So now when I want to share my recipes with you, I have to leave the comfort of my home, walk to the office, and use my computer there (I probably shouldn’t tell you that it’s only about a 4 minute walk from where we live). But when I’m at home and already settled in for the evening, that’s the last thing I feel like doing. And heaven forbid I do it Company time! Which is not what I am doing right now…

So for the time being, I will do as best I can. The recipe is a short one, but definitely worth making.  It makes you feel like summer is finally here! I also topped the salad with slices of baked chicken and it was a perfect meal.
