Fried Goat Cheese, Fig, & Peach Salad

Fried Goat Cheese, Fig, and Peach Salad recipe

IT’S STILL SUMMER

…and that means this meal is perfectly timed! What better way to celebrate late summer than with a sweet & savory salad?

This recipe was inspired by The Floating Kitchen‘s Almond-Crusted Goat Cheese, Peach, & Fig Salad. We tweaked it a tad and enjoyed it immensely.
