Friends, Happy Monday! This Peach Waldorf Salad is so yummy to bring to a summer party or picnic, your typical Waldorf salad made with fresh peaches! Harry & David’s peaches, that is. They recently held their annual Peach Palooza event, where they sell about a million peaches for uber cheap by the pound, and everyone comes out to get their peaches.

Except we didn’t attend this year. But our friend, Stan, brought us a bag to our campout over the weekend, so that made me very happy. We’re a peach-loving family! :)

Perfect for this spin on the traditional Waldorf salad, this salad is super yummy, and great for a potluck, barbecue, or picnic. You could serve it with these Barbecue Maple Chicken Kebabs, this broccoli salad, and this summer corn. And then for dessert? How about these Marionberry Ice Cream Sandwiches!

I had a great conversation the other day with my friend, about hospitality. She’s involved in women’s ministry in church, and the conversation was centered around women getting together for one hour every week for either prayer, study, or just fellowship. I believe all 3 are important, especially when it comes to those who know nobody, and want to meet new people.

We talked about how scary it is to open your home for the first time, to people you do not know. What will they think? Will they like us? Is my house “cool” enough? What do I serve?

For the person that is scared to death, there are ways to be hospitable, outside of entertaining in your home. I really do believe that hospitality can happen anywhere. It’s really about YOU, the state of your heart, and whether you care about others, or want to love on them.

One way for me to get to know another person is to invite them over for lunch. Just me and them. How easy is that?

Or, meet them at a park, and bring a picnic!

Or, just go for coffee. That is probably the easiest.

Sometimes we need to extend ourselves beyond easy, though, and stretch ourselves.

What way do you feel inspired to open your home to others?

  1. Bought peaches the other day and was thinking how to use them (apart from eating raw). Thanks for the inspiration! This looks very tasty!
