Grilled Peach Blueberry Spinach Salad with Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

This is one tasty and beautiful salad that just screams summer to me! Peaches are a quintessential summer fruit and summertime is definitely peak grilling season. So why not grill some peaches before mixing them into this quick and easy salad?

Grilling peaches brings out the juices and natural sweetness of the fruit; plus those grill marks are always a welcome sight! The peaches slightly soften with the heat as well, so make sure that the peach sections are large enough to easily flip and not fall through the grill grates. We recommend using tongs to make flipping easier.

For this recipe, we used white peaches, which are more delicate, sweeter, and have lower acidic levels compared to yellow peaches; however, feel free to use any type of peach you like! It will taste delicious no matter what type of peach you choose.

Combine the sweet peaches with fresh, sweet and tart blueberries, salty and creamy feta cheese, toasted pecans, and a sweet-acidic honey balsamic dressing and you’ve got an absolutely delectable summer salad that’s perfect as a quick, light lunch or as a side dish that goes wonderfully with your other tasty grilled foods!

A fresh summer salad with grilled peaches, blueberries, feta, and pecans! A simple honey balsamic vinaigrette complements the sweet, salty, and nutty flavours!

Ingredients

For the salad:

  • 6 packed cups baby spinach
  • 4 peaches (I used white peaches), pit removed and cut into eight sections
  • 1 cup (4 oz) fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup (2 oz) toasted pecans
  • ½ cup (2.5 oz) feta cheese, crumbled

For the dressing:

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp pure honey
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Other ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • Oil for oiling the grill grates

Instructions

  1. Heat up the grill to medium-high. Brush the peach sections with a thin coat of melted butter. Lightly oil the grill grates before placing the peaches about an inch apart. Grill the peach sections for about 3-4 minutes on each side, flipping once using tongs. Remove from the grill, place onto a plate and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients until well combined. Taste and adjust the dressing to your preference. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, assemble the salad by combining the salad ingredients together. Drizzle the desired amount of vinaigrette on top and toss to combine. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • If you are planning to have leftovers, keep the salad separate from the vinaigrette and cover both in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Re-whisk the vinaigrette and drizzle just before serving.
