    Celiac.com 06/01/2019 - The first peaches of the season are due any minute, so you won't have to wait long to make this delightful spring and summer salad. Ripe, unpeeled peaches bring sweetness, juiciness, and texture to this refreshing salad. Crumbly ricotta salata adds a slightly salty flavor, and makes a great alternative to feta or goat cheese. This salad goes great with crusty, toasted gluten-free bread and a glass of chilled riesling. 
    Ingredients:
    8 ounces of butter lettuce 2 large ripe peaches, cut into wedges 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 2 teaspoons honey 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper ...
