Ready Time

30 mins

Yields

10 servings

Ingredients

  • 10 ripe but firm peaches, sliced into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 10 cups mixed greens
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

Brush the peach wedges with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Grill the peaches for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until they develop a nice char and tender flesh.

In a large bowl, combine the mixed greens, sliced red onion, crumbled blue cheese, and chopped pecans.

In a small bowl, whisk together the Dijon mustard and honey until well combined.

Season the dressing with salt and pepper to taste.

Once the peaches are grilled, let them cool slightly.

Then, chop them into bite-sized pieces and add them to the bowl with the mixed greens.

Toss the salad with the honey-mustard dressing until everything is well coated.

Garnish with chopped fresh mint leaves and serve immediately.

Notes

Make sure to choose peaches that are ripe but still firm to the touch, as they’ll hold their shape better when grilled.

Don’t overcrowd the grill – grill the peaches in batches if necessary, to ensure they get a nice char on both sides.

Use a mix of sweet and tangy greens for the best flavor.

If you can’t find pecans, you can substitute with walnuts or almonds, but pecans have a nice buttery flavor that pairs well with the peaches.

Don’t over-dress the salad – you want the flavors to meld together, not overpower the dish.

Start with a light hand and add more dressing as needed.

You can prep the ingredients ahead of time, but wait to assemble the salad until just before serving, so the greens stay crisp and fresh.

Consider making the honey-mustard dressing ahead and storing it in the fridge for up to a week – it’s great on other salads too!
