Hello peachy summer perfection in the form of a salad!
This little salad started with these fresh peaches from the orchard.
We halved them, removed the pits, sprinkled them with cinnamon and a small pat of butter and my hubby grilled them up! YUM!
Side note: These also make a great topping for vanilla ice cream!
A few additions and we had the perfect summer salad, with these peaches as the star!
(makes 2 side salads)
Sprinkle of cinnamon
2 teaspoons of butter
Light olive oil cooking spray
2-3 cups of spring mix or greens of your choice per salad you want to make
1/2 cup toasted pecan halves or pieces
1/2 cup goat cheese
Dressing of your choice – we used a honey vinaigrette
NOTE: To make this an entree rather than a side, add chicken breast or shrimp
Half the peaches, remove the pits and sprinkle each half with cinnamon. Place a small pat of butter in the middle of each half.
Heat grill to medium-high heat and cook until peaches are cooked to desired taste. We like them to be soft with some grill marks-1-2 minutes per side.
Remove peaches from grill and set aside.
To toast pecans – Spray a baking sheet with light cooking spray. Spread pecans on sheet and cook in the oven for about 5 minutes at 350 degrees. Keep an eye on them, as pecans can scorch quickly!
Place spring mix, pecans, and goat cheese in a bowl and toss with salad dressing of your choice.
Slice peach halves into smaller slices and place on top.
