Grilled peach salad


I don’t know about all of you, but with the humidity and heat of summer its hard to figure out what to make for dinner. Something that’s not to heavy but still satisfying. So while I was putting together the CSA baskets this morning I got to looking at all that fabulous fresh produce and it just clicked. Why not a fresh salad with something sweet like peaches or even pears on it.

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 firm but ripe peaches, halved and pitted
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of toasted pecans
  • Feta cheese
  • Arugala salad mix

Prepare a grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-high heat ( or use a stove top grill pan) oil the grill grates to prevent sticking.                                                   In a small bowl, combine the honey, a pinch of salt and 1 tsp pepper. Brush the peach halves with olive oil and place on grill, cut side down. Cover the grill and cook until the peaches just begin to soften, 3-4 minutes. Turn the peaches and brush with honey mixture. Cook until tender but not falling apart, 2-3 minutes longer. (Serve either cooled or hot off the grill) on a bed of Arugala, sprinkle with feta cheese. And enjoy
