Nectarine Chicken Salad

Photo by Taste of Home
Good peaches and nectarines are available right now, and I had had this recipe: Nectarine Chicken Salad  on my "to-try" list for several weeks.  I finally got around to trying the salad this week, and we enjoyed it very much!

I did use peaches rather than nectarines, since that's what I had.  For the lettuce component I used a bag of the "triple hearts" salad mix by Fresh Express.  I used leftover cooked chicken rather than cooking chicken breasts -- I had cooked a roasting chicken in the crockpot last Friday and so had plenty of chicken to work with.  I think the only other thing I changed was not to use thyme in the dressing.  I like thyme in moderation, but wasn't sure about using only that herb in this dressing.  So I used a teaspoon of salad seasoning instead, reasoning that thyme was probably part of the blend.  Also, salad seasoning contains salt, and it seemed to me this dressing could use a little of that.  But I would say, use whatever herb or blend of herbs that appeals to you.

We thought this salad was deliciously different, and will definitely be making this recipe again!
