Roast Chicken Salad with Peaches, Goat Cheese & Pecans

 Fresh peaches and goat cheese headline this simple, no-cook salad recipe. The eight-ingredient vinaigrette, made with pantry staples, takes minutes to make and is a delicious complement to the other ingredients in the salad. Use a store-bought rotisserie chicken to save time in the kitchen. Serve with herbed bread.
