Just Peachy Spinach Salad

Peach don’t have to be saved for dessert try them in a salad too!  The blend of fresh greens and sweet peaches are a great combo when paired with salty bacon what a treat.  If you’ve gone vegetarian leave out the bacon but don’t forget to add the toasted pecans for crunch and a buttery flavor.
