Spicy Peach and Bacon Salad

Serves: 4
Hands On Time: 
Total Time: 


6 strips applewood-smoked bacon
6 peaches, pitted and cut into wedges
1/2 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
1 (0.75-ounce) package fresh mint, leaves chopped
1/2 serrano chile, very thinly sliced
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Heat the oven to 350 degrees.

On a parchment-lined baking sheet, arrange the bacon with at least one inch of space in between each slice. Bake until the bacon is crisp, 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly. Once the bacon is cool enough to handle, chop into one-inch pieces.

In a large bowl, combine the peaches, peanuts, mint and chile with the cooked bacon. Add the olive oil and lime juice and stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
