Nectarine Salad with Walnut Dressing

Spread the love

Nectarine and Walnut Salad This is a simple salad I served for a little get together we were having the other day. I like to keep things simple when people are coming over. I don’t go over board and cook lots of dishes- my philosophy is to focus on a few dishes and make them absolutely delicious.

For this dinner my plan was to make a lasagna and garlic bread. I decided to make a nectarine salad and baked nectarine dessert. If you didn’t guess- I love nectarines.

This salad is super simple- I used mixed greens. I added some walnuts and cut up a nectarine. I had recently purchased a bottle of walnut oil. I used it to make a delicious vinaigrette. I looked in my fridge and found a bottle of mango apricot nectar. I used that in addition to some white wine vinegar. Some salt and pepper and I had a yummy dressing. It was a great start to the meal. It had a great crunch from the walnuts and a burst of sweetness from the nectarines. The walnut oil flavor came through loud and clear and tied all the flavors together.

  • 4 cups mixed greens
  • 1 large nectarine, chopped into ½ inch pieces
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

Add the mixed greens, nectarine and walnuts into a large salad bowl.


  • ¼ cup mango apricot nectar
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon walnut oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Add the nectar, vinegar, salt and pepper into a small bowl. Whisk in the walnut oil till the dressing is emulsified.
Dress the greens and serve.
