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!
