Leave it to the fine people at Delish to provide us with sumptuous recipes for any occasion. As we celebrate Earth Day 2015 during the last full week of April, Delish encourages us to “Go Green” with a list of leafy and delicious recipes to enjoy!

We don’t feature salad recipes often on Peter Salerno Inc.’s official blog, but this one was too interesting and enjoyable to pass up. It’s a bold and refreshing Spinach and Nectarine Salad recipe, and it’s sure to provide a refreshing twist on your classic spinach salad.

Originally contributed by Kate Mathis to Delish, this Spinach and Nectarine Salad combines recognizable spinach salad elements (olive oil, balsamic vinegar, baby spinach) with zesty, refreshing twists (orange marmalade, nectarines). Try it for yourself, and see why it’s our favorite Earth Day 2015 salad recipe!
