Dani Wednesdays: Caramelized Peach and Onion Salad

A few weekends ago, I was eating at a restaurant and ordered a salad with caramelized peaches. Cannot remember the protein on the salad, so feel free to use what you have. Needless to say the salad was awesome. I recreated it for my family tonight and it was marvelous. Still wishing I had made a bigger portion. This recipe is simple and so darn good.
