Warm Sous Vide Peach and Blue Cheese Salad Recipe
Sometimes I am up for a light snack that will hold me over until dinner time. This mixture of peaches and blue cheese always does the trick. I was originally unsure of the flavor combinations but once I tried it together I was won over. This salad works best in the height of peach season, though sometimes I eat them all before I get around to actually cooking them!
