Grilled Peach Salad


This is the last post for Salad Wednesday, here is a list of our other salads from this spring:


Our next Wednesday series will be Grilling Wednesday, perfect for the summer. This recipe is a transition between the two, it was a salad, but it used grilled peaches. Look back every Wednesday where will will try out some interesting vegetarian recipes for the grill!

This idea came from Paula Deen.

Ingredients:
-3 peaches cut into slices
-1 Tbsp olive oil
-1 tsp salt
-5 cups spinach lettuce mix
-1/2 cup chopped pecans
-1/3 cup mozzarella cheese

I used a raspberry balsamic vinaigrette as dressing, and it went well with this salad.

Make up a plate of the greens, pecans and cheese.
Brush the peaches with a little olive oil and salt.
Put on the grill for about 2 minutes per side.
A few fell apart, but not many.
They got some nice grill marks.
Add the peaches and dressing to the salad.
This was one of the best salads I have made. It is great to be able to use the grill, and grilling the peaches really brought out their flavor. The spinach and the peaches were a good combination too. I would recommend this as a side dish next time you grill.
