Peachy Arugula Salad

Guess what!! Summer is here again, and after all the delicious Indian food last week, all I could think was – some fresh and colorful salads. Peaches are a lovely addition to any salad, because they are so good for your skin, they are low in calories and are a great source of Vitamin C and A. I’m sure it has many more health benefits, however, it tastes equally amazing and look at the color it pops out!! So, I decided bring some sunshine and add some peachy fun to our lives, while we gobble this easy-peasy salad!
