Raspberry Peach Salad with Grilled Chicken, Feta, and Almonds

A cause for and byproduct of writing a food website is that I spend an inordinate portion of my day focused on, well, food. When I’m not editing my own food photos, I’m flipping through inspiring ones in magazines, and more often than I care to admit, I’m eating one recipe while plotting the next.

While food is my passion and inspiration, it is also my routine, and as such, I sometimes forget to step back and appreciate it for its intrinsic beauty. Then, in the midst of a hectic week, I nearly fell off my stepladder when I leaned over to photograph the first shot of this Peach Salad with Grilled Chicken and Raspberries.
