Grilled Peach Salad

All I can say about this grilled peach salad is COME ON!!!  This is so good that you won’t even believe it!!! When peach season rolls around I am buying them left and right.  We love peaches at our house, so I knew that this salad would become a staple.

The Dressing

First lets talk about the dressing.  A fresh basil vinaigrette that is BURSTING with freshness.  I whipped this up in my blender and boy was it the finishing touch to this salad.  It added a clean, herbal tang – that you just CAN’T get from a store bought dressing. As always I used my blended and used the twister jar to make the perfect dressing.  This dressing is so good that Steph has used it a few times in some of her posts.

Peaches Scream Summer

I grilled my peaches for a little char and richness of flavor.  It only took a few minutes and added just the depth of flavor I was after.  I love a little crunch to my salad, so pecans it was!  A few dried cranberries and some creamy goat cheese finished it off for a combo of flavor and textures that screams summertime bbq.

This side is the perfect compliment to a grilled meat – or add grilled chicken to the salad for a complete meal!
