Peach Champagne Vinaigrette
Dairy-free Creamy And A Little Sweet
This Peach Champagne Vinaigrette is perfect for summer time salads. It’s so easy with only 6 ingredients. Just put it all in the blender and presto! It’s done! It is very light and goes well with fruit with greens in a salad. So as not to over power anything, this vinaigrette can liven up the lightest of flavors. It is just so refreshing, creamy, sweet, salty and savory that the whole family will love it.
How To Make Peach Champagne Vinaigrette
There really is no mystery to making this wonderful dressing. Although, I firmly believe that to have the best tasting anything that you have to have high quality fresh foods. As of this moment peaches are ripe and bursting with flavor so go out and find a beautiful organic ripe peach. Pick one that is medium to medium large in size. When blending this up you leave the skins on so pick one with bright color. Little bits of the color show up in the vinaigrette so that you can see it in the dressing. It’s very pretty!
As for the champagne in this Peach Champagne Vinaigrette, it’s not real champagne. Although, that could be a fun try in this vinaigrette. I use a champagne vinegar by Stonewall Kitchen.
This champagne vinegar is a beautiful oak aged vinegar. This Napa Valley Naturals is from the French Champagne Region of California from the Grand cru-rated vineyards. Meaning “great growth”, the best of the best they are the top-tier classification by region of French wine. How wonderful is that? So give it a try. It is under the gourmet vinegar section in most grocery stores. At least it is out here on the West Coast of the United States. If you don’t care for champagne vinegar you can always use lemon juice in its place.
Why I Use Honey In This Vinaigrette
I am a firm believer in protecting the bees. I always use local honey from farmers that feed their bees proper food. Not having proper nutrition weakens the bees to get sick. We use it sparingly and for medicinal purposes only. Honey is a natural antibiotic and it works well for our new born Northwest allergies.
I will be exploring the use of more of the champagne vinegar in my future recipes. It does have a refreshing flavor that goes well with fruit. There is a lot of promise to experiment with here. We hope you love this Peach Champagne Vinaigrette as much as we do.
