Grilled Peach, Chicken and Walnut Salad

I cant help but feel sad that peach season has long past. The summer months are full of fresh fruit, produce, and all the herbs a girl could want! As much as I love spicy apple and pumpkin smells flooding my kitchen, I cant help but long for summer months after its gone. This Grilled Peach, Chicken and Walnut Salad helps make it bearable.

This Grilled Peach, Chicken and Walnut Salad is an ode to summer containing fresh and light flavors and all my favorite summer goodies. Avocado brings creaminess to the mixture of chicken and walnuts. Grilled peaches bring a warm and Smokey flavor to the salad while goat cheese brings a tart, earthy flavor. Combine it all with a lemon basil dressing and you are in for a treat!
