I don’t know about you, but whenever I go grocery shopping, the first section I check is the produce department. It’s like a candy store for me getting so excited about the colorful fresh fruits and veggies … and especially this time of year when everything seems to have that lively, summer-y, fresh vibe!
One of the stores I love shopping for groceries (especially for fresh produce) is my local Wegmans. And that’s why I’m so excited to be partnering with Wegmans once again to bring you my newest recipe – Peach Arugula Salad and to tell you about the newest happenings this summer at Wegmans!
Wegmans has all the best-of-the-season summer fruits, including their exclusive Wegmans White Pearl Nectarines and Lori Anne Peaches – which are grown for and only available at Wegmans! I know that the summer fruit season is short, so we try to enjoy peaches and nectarines on their own, and then I find some fun and easy ways to incorporate them into my family’s meals.
Like this Peach Arugula Salad made with Lori Anne Peaches.
With beans, arugula, onion and peaches, this salad is just perfect for these hot summer days! I also really love the light, fresh lemon-y dressing made with Wegmans Organic Basting Oil and Wegmans Extra Virgin Oil.
I served this Peach Arugula Salad to my family with chicken tacos a few nights ago and we had a perfectly flavorful summer time dinner that everyone enjoyed!
I found the recipe on the Wegmans recipe page HERE if you want to try it.
Now what really made this salad extra delicious is the fact that it’s got the Lori Anne Peaches in it. These sunny sweeties are juicy and tender and what’s interesting is that they’re hand-selected and shipped to Wegmans stores straight from family-owned Titan Farms. I was curious about these peaches and here are some fun facts I found:
- Lori Anne peaches were created for Wegmans in 2013 and they’re now Wegmans’ #1 peach in the month of July
- The peach’s namesake Lori Anne is after the Titan Farms’ owner Lori Anne Carr. Titan Farms is owned by Chalmers and Lori Anne Carr.
- Every summer, Titan Farms sends Wegmans more than 2.5 million Lori Anne Peaches.
- Lori Anne Peaches are hand-picked directly into small toes, then sized and delicately packed in single layers for shipment.
- Peaches ordered on a Monday are harvested and packed that day, shipped on Tuesday.
- Whey they arrive at Wegmans 3-4 times a week, they’ve only been off the tree for 3-4 days.
Now since we’re talking about peaches and fruits and salads, I’m excited to tell you about Wegmans’ Summer Fruit Fest event which is running for two weekends at Wegmans stores!
If you’re near a Wegmans store, go check out the Summer Fruit Fest event this weekend on July 26 and 27, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day where you can enjoy food and drink samples in produce and throughout the store, which will include:

At the event, recipe pamphlets will also be available, or you can also get the recipes are on their website at Wegmans.com. Bring your family and friends at this super fun food event as there will be other activities and happenings too including a prize wheel, giveaway bag, cut-out photo prop, hats, bandanas, stickers and tattoos. I will be at the Wegmans Alexandria location this coming Saturday so I’ll see you there if you’re going!
This is such a great combination..! I will surely love this salad, looks so great.. Yum..!
Oh yes! I can also feel that awesomesummery vuibe when you enter the grocery store and fresh colorful fruits and veges greet you. I always feel like buying eveyrthing then! Anyway, you salad is so colorful and looks so crunchy… I need a bite!
Here in Malaysia, we don’t have Wegmans store but I also like going to the produce department when I visit my supermarket. That’s the most attractive department.
I love arugula though I’ve never thought of pairing it with peaches. Great salad idea and perfect for this season. Indeed, it makes a huge difference to the taste and flavors when you use fresh produce. I’ll be trying out your recipe soon. Cheers.
This is perfect summer salad recipe. I will definitely going to try to make this salad.
I love this Peach Arugula Salad recipe! Such an unusual combination and perfect for the summer months!
I love this recipe so much! Every single ingredient sounds amazing, I’ll definitely be adding this to my list of things to try!
That dinner sounds delicious, right up my alley with tacos and a refreshing salad! I like that you added fruit to your salad, it makes it so flavourful!
I can not help but stare at that crispy, crunchy, incredibly sweet looking nectarine!!!
I love putting fruit in my salads. I only recently started doing it and I love it!
That’s a great looking salad. Peaches are the perfect touch for them, especially during the warm months because they are so refreshing.
The salad looks tasty. Perfect for the summer. Thanks for sharing.
I would love to try peach with arugula one day. It sounds like a very tasty combo.
This recipe is deceptively simple. And those peaches sound so delicious. This one I’ll def be pinning for later. Thanks for sharing.
Boy! Does that salad look yummy. I don’t have a Wegman’s store near me but like you I like my veggies and fruits fresh.
I love summer fruit in salads. It is so nice and refreshing. We don’t have a Wegman’s.
YUM! Well I love peaches and I love arugula, so this is definitely a salad I would make!
This recipe looks so yummy! I’ve never tried putting fruit in my salad but this looks so tasty that I’m going to try it. Thanks for sharing!
I am a great fan of salads during summer and this stores would surely have plenty of options. I love to be in good places like this.
I don’t whop at Wegmans a lot because it’s somewhat of a far drive. But in the summer we get all our fruit bowls and birthday cakes from there! The BEST
I’m trying to eat as healthy as possible and I tried to add arugula to my life but I gotta be honest. I don’t like it. It has a very specific ration in my salads (like 10% or less of the total salad). Too tart for me.
I love shopping at Wegman’s. It’s one of my fave stores of all time. This salad looks tasty. I Love putting fruits in my salad.
Arugula tastes so good, I really love incorporating it with my salad. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.
I love summer salads! They are always full of vitamins and so healthy! I should try this one!
Wow, this looks like such a super simple and delicious recipe. I love the fresh ingredients that you’ve used!
Mmmm, that looks and sounds delicious. A little bit of fruit makes everything yummy!
Looks like a wonderful store to shop at. I love summer and the peach season. I love peach pie and and I like to eat peaches in the winter months too! That’s amazing that the store can receive the peaches in such a short time after they are being harvested. I love that Wegmans support local farmers.
I’ve never had peaches in my salad before, but of all the fruits, I can see why that would taste really good!
I wish I had this store near me. Looks like they have some really good produce. If I’m ever in the area I’ll make sure to stop and check out this store.
This salad looks delicious! I love adding fruit to my salad. Will have to try your recipe!
Yum, this salad looks so good. I’m going to have to give it a try one evening for dinner. We have been eating a ton of salads this summer.
We have been trying out different salad recipes lately and this peach arugula salad sounds delicious! I will see if I can get some nice juicy peaches today. I can’t wait to make this!
Peaches are my favorite! I love arugula too because it has a natural spiciness to it! So good!
That peppery goodness of arugula with the sweet juicy peach is seriously making me so hungry. Delish.
Wegmans is such a great place to shop, so many choices! I love this simple recipe. It’s perfect in this summer heat!
OMG this salad looks so good and fresh. I’d never think of peaches in salad (I am not creative like that with food) but will actually give that a try. Peaches are definitely in season so this would be a great idea for a fresh salad take here.
Peach Arugula Salad is one of my favorites! I hope I can try your recipe soon. It seems very easy to do!
We shop at Wegmans about once every two weeks. They used to have so many different brands and it was easy to find what we needed. Lately though it seems like they don’t have as many brands and are moving towards their own brand. They still have a great produce department.
I have never heard of Wegman’s and I don’t think there is one in my area (although I am gonna look just in case) but that is a shame becayse a fruit fest sounds like FUN and I already have no plans this weekend!
Such a refreshing take on peaches – my daughter will love this.
I love me some Wegmans and I always load up on produce there. It is addictive, isn’t it? I love the combo you have here and going there on Friday to pick these ingredients up.
I love Arugula! It is actually one of the only lettuce like things I like! Thanks for the idea… it looks so good with those peaches!
I think the nearest Wegman’s to us is a few hours away in Upstate. We have shopped in some when traveling up that way. Their produce is top-notch! Peaches are one of my favorite summer fruits. I’ll have to make this!
I love peaches. My friend has a neighboor with a peach tree so it is almost picking time.
I love peaches and I love salads so I cannot wait to try this Peach Arugula Salad! I have been looking for a new recipe to try so thank you so much for sharing this post!
Those peaches look amazing and are one of my favorite things in summer. I need to get to a Wegman’s and check out this great produce and try make that salad.
this post looks so tempting…it’s mouthwatering and I wanted to go at our nearest grocery right now, but sadly it’s all close. maybe tomorrow. Thanks for sharing.
Yum, what a tasty looking salad. I do love peaches, so I will have to give this a try for lunch.

What a great salad recipe. I never had peaches with arugula but it does look good. Will definitely try this out.
I have never really added fruit to salads before. This one looks delicious and I will have to give it a try!
Great contents and picture. i can tell you put a lot of work into it
never heard of Wegmans but I do love a good juicy peach. I prefer getting mine at Trader Joe’s. Do you know of those? And a warm arugula salad with pasta is good. ever tried that?
