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!
The Salad Ingredients: baby spinach, white peaches, fresh blueberries, toasted pecans, and crumbled feta cheese.
The peaches are brushed with butter, grilled, and then added to the salad! The dressing only has 5 ingredients and can be quickly whisked together in a couple minutes.
So many different flavours and textures in this filling salad! Drizzle with the honey balsamic vinaigrette and enjoy!
