Salad with peaches and blueberries is a delicious, nutritious recipe. If you saw this post on social media, Twitter, or some other source, you may already know how Blueberries and Salads would go together in a dish. To be honest I was skeptical that Blueberries could make normal salad into something delciious! Give it ago annd tell me what you think 🙂

Blueberry Peach Feta Salad

In the middle of summer it can be hard to find the motivation to cook, especially on a hot day. On days like those I gravitate towards using the grill to make my favorite chipotle maple grilled salmon or grilled pesto chicken skewers.

I always have to have some sort of refreshing salad to go with whatever I grill. During peach season, especially Colorado peach season, I love to make this Blueberry Peach Feta Salad. It’s sweet from the peaches and blueberries, a little salty from the feta and has a fresh crisp crunch from the Persian cucumbers.

The salad is tossed in a light lemon vinaigrette and is an absolute dream to eat on a hot summer day! It goes great with pretty much any grilled protein and is a wonderful side dish to bring to a barbecue.

How To Make Blueberry Peach Feta Salad

Making this salad is as easy as making a simple everyday lettuce salad. Dice the peaches, slice the cucumbers, and add them to a serving bowl along with the blueberries.

Whenever I make a recipe with feta, I prefer to use block feta and crumble it myself. I feel that the flavor is better, it isn’t as dry and it doesn’t have any of the anti-caking agent in it that pre-crumbled and pre-shredded cheeses contain. For this salad recipe you can crumble or cube the feta cheese.

The final step is to make the lemon vinaigrette. Combine the lemon juice, dijon, honey, olive oil, salt and pepper in a jar. Thinly slice the fresh basil, otherwise known as chiffonade and add it into the mix. Screw on the lid and shake it until it’s well combined. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and gently toss everything together. You can eat the salad immediately or refrigerate it until you’re ready to serve.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make the salad vegan?

Yes. Simply omit the feta and substitute the honey in the lemon vinaigrette with maple syrup. You can also add a can of chickpeas to the salad to make it heartier.

How long will the salad keep?

The salad keeps for a couple days in the refrigerator. You will notice that the peaches will get softer and the feta will start to break down the longer it’s in the fridge, but it still taste great.

Can I make the salad ahead of time?

Parts of the salad can be made ahead of time. You can cut the peaches and combine them with the cucumbers and blueberries a day ahead of time. The vinaigrette can be made several days ahead of time. I would wait until the day you plan to eat the salad to add in the fresh basil, feta and toss the salad in the vinaigrette.

Ingredient Substitutions

  • Peaches – If you aren’t a fan of peaches, substitute them with nectarines.
  • Feta – Goat cheese is a good substitution for feta. You could also use queso fresco or ricotta salata
  • Persian Cucumbers – I love to use Persian cucumbers, which may also be called snacking cucumbers, because they’re extra crunchy and you don’t have to peel them. If you can’t find these, use an English cucumber instead. You may want to scoop out the seeds if you go this route, but you won’t need to peel it.
  • Blueberries – Strawberries or blackberries would be a good substitute for blueberries. As with the blueberries and peaches, make sure they are the sweetest and freshest ones you can find to have the best results with this salad. You may find that the strawberries don’t hold up as long in the salad and get soft.
  • Honey – Substitute with maple syrup

Peaches are a staple in our house this time of year, and one of my fave ways to enjoy them is in salads. I love how their sweet juiciness mingles with savory ingredients to create light and refreshing salads. And this blueberry peach salad is definitely refreshing!

It’s also topped with an easy balsamic dressing made with fresh peaches and blueberries. It’s creamy, without dairy, and the tanginess pairs well with the juicy fruit and salty feta in the salad.


  • Fresh peaches and blueberries
  • Your choice of greens
  • Cilantro
  • Cooked quinoa
  • Pecans
  • Feta
  • Balsamic vinegar and oil (for the dressing)


  • This is an easy recipe to make, and it can be served as a family style salad or in individual servings.
  • Start by making your dressing. Add your blueberries, half a peeled peach, oil and vinegar to a blender, and blend on high until thick and creamy with flecks of blueberry throughout.
  • To assemble the salad, prep your greens and cilantro (washing and chopping as necessary). Toss them together and add them all to a large bowl or divide them onto 6 serving plates.
  • Layer on the peach slices, blueberries, quinoa, pecans and feta.
  • Drizzle with dressing and serve!


Can you prep this peach salad in advance? Yes, you can prep most of the salad ingredients in advance and assemble when ready to serve. The balsamic dressing, however, includes fresh peaches and blueberries, so I find it’s best enjoyed fresh. I suggest waiting to make it until just before serving.

How do you store leftovers? If you have leftover salad without dressing on it, you can just place it in an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator. Leftovers are best enjoyed within a day or two. The dressing should not be kept as leftovers, but enjoyed within a few hours of making it.

Can you make it vegan? Absolutely, just forego the feta cheese and ensure your balsamic vinegar is vegan.

  • You will need about 6 cups of greens for this salad. I usually make it with a mix of red and green leafy lettuce, but you can also make it with spinach, arugula, Swiss chard, kale, beet greens or Boston lettuce, or whatever you have on hand.
  • I also add half a cup of fresh cilantro as I love the flavour twist it adds. If you’re not a cilantro lover, you can omit it or use fresh parsley instead.
  • As mentioned, the balsamic dressing includes fresh peaches and blueberries, so it’s best enjoyed fresh. If you’re looking for a dressing that can be made and stored in advance, I’ve included the recipe for my honey basil vinaigrette in the recipe notes.
  • This recipes calls for peach slices, but when I have extra time, I usually make it with grilled peaches. Instructions on how to do this are also included in the recipe notes.
  • To keep it simple, I used raw pecan halves in this salad, but you can also use chopped pecans, or even candied pecans. Walnuts or sliced almonds would also work well.
  • This salad is pretty hearty with the added quinoa, but if you want to make it an entrée salad, just add some grilled chicken, tofu or shrimp.
