This Honey Lemon Vinaigrette recipe is barely a recipe at all but comes that the request of a friend who saws it used on a peach and bacon salad Spouse made last week.

Summer fresh peaches.

With fresh peaches and an abundance of garden cucumbers available at this time of summer, it’s a simple combination for a salad that works deliciously well with salty smoky bacon.

Honey Lemon vinaigrette is not meant to be used on a single salad, however. We use it on practically and fresh salad that uses summer fruits and berries as they come into season.

I love thyme with peaches but other fresh herbs could be substituted to suit the ingredients you are using.

Fresh mint with a strawberry spinach salad is particularly good. Or try a little tarragon in the vinaigrette when fresh plums are in season to add to your fresh seasonal salad.

My only tip for salads like these is to keep it simple and limit the number of ingredients in them. Let the best of what’s in season shines through.
