Sweet peach salad

Sweet and heat together!  It's a hard-to-beat combination.

Sweet Peach Salad

3 - 4 c spring mix or herb mix of greens
3 - 4 peaches, sliced thin
2 small jalapeƱos, sliced thin
1 shallot, minced
2 T fresh mint leaves, chopped
3 - 4 T fresh basil, chopped

1/4 c orange juice
1/4 c lime juice
1 1/2 T coriander
3 T sugar

Make the dressing first.  Bring all ingredients to a boil until sugar dissolves.  Set aside and let it cool.  To make the salad, mix the sliced peaches, jalapeƱos, shallot, and mint with the dressing.  Let them soak for about 30 minutes.  Arrange the greens and basil in a serving bowl.  Remove the fruit mixture from the dressing with a slotted spoon and toss with the greens.  Drizzle over remaining dressing.
