I am trying to make the most of this season’s delicious fruit, so a salad with grilled peaches is a must! I love adding fruit to salads to give them a special touch.
My go-to mixture is greens and/or legumes, some seasonal fruit, dried fruits or seeds, some nice cheese (optional) and vinaigrette or pesto. The combinations are endless, and we can use these salads both as a side or main dish.
Grilling peaches is very simple and it only takes 5-6 minutes. Just heat up the grill with some olive oil until it is very hot and place the pitted halved peaches on top. Grill for 2-3 minutes on each side undisturbed for 1-2 minutes, so that they get lovely grill marks.
Then just cut them in 2 or 3 wedges and add them to the salad.
This particular salad starts with a bottom layer of assorted greens drizzled with olive oil, the peaches on top, some brie cheese, walnuts and a few dollops of delicious basil pesto.
