Ready Time

Yields

5 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 ripe peaches, sliced into wedges
  • 2 cups mixed greens
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

Preheat your grill to medium heat. Grill the peach slices for 2-3 minutes per side, or until they’re slightly caramelized and tender.

Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, combine the mixed greens, blue cheese, pecans, red onion, and mint leaves. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper to make the vinaigrette.

Slowly pour in the olive oil, whisking continuously until the dressing is smooth and emulsified.

To assemble the salad, place a portion of the greens mixture onto each plate. Top with a few slices of the grilled peaches and drizzle with the honey vinaigrette.

Serve immediately and adjust the seasoning if needed.

Notes

Use ripe but firm peaches for best results, as they’ll hold their shape when grilled. If using a gas grill, you can get away with 2 minutes per side, but charcoal grills might take a minute longer.

For the mixed greens, feel free to customize with your favorite blend – arugula, spinach, and lettuce work beautifully together.

Don’t skip toasting the pecans in a 350°F oven for 5-7 minutes, or in a dry skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes, to bring out their flavor and crunch. Red onion can be a bit overpowering, so adjust the amount to your taste.

You can also use shallots or scallions as a substitute.

Fresh mint leaves make a huge difference in this recipe, so do try to find them or use dried mint as a last resort. Make the vinaigrette ahead of time, as it’ll thicken and emulsify even more in the fridge overnight.

This recipe is highly customizable, so don’t be afraid to swap blue cheese for goat cheese or feta, or add some grilled chicken for extra protein.

With 5 servings, this salad is perfect for a summer dinner party or a light lunch.
