This fresh Grilled Peach Salad with Honey-Jalapeno Dressing is an easy salad that is naturally sweet with a backend kick.
This has been the best year for peaches. They are so sweet and juicy, and plentiful! I just can’t get enough of them and I hope you’re like me and savoring them while you can. Enjoying them in this Grilled Peach Salad is one of my favorite ways!
When I told you about the Strawberry Spinach salad a few weeks ago, I told you about being a strawberry snob. I guess I am just a big ole salad snob. I say that because one of my biggest pet peeves is when you go to a restaurant, and they serve you a salad where the greens are too big to eat or they’ve given you the big yellow chunk from the center of a head of lettuce. Really? Who wants that?
Tearing or cutting greens into bite-sized pieces look better and make it easier to eat. You can make this salad with the greens you prefer, but I choose greens with a bit of structure that can hold the weight of the peaches. A strong cheese balances out the sweetness of the peaches. I used a crumbled gorgonzola. A blue cheese would be delicious too. The Honey-Jalapeno dressing starts out sweet and ends with a hint of heat. I just love that. It’s that oooh moment that makes this Grilled Peach salad anything but ordinary.
John and I ate this salad with a couple slices of crusty bread that I’d brushed with olive oil and rubbed with a fresh garlic clove. I put the bread on the grill right before my peaches were finished.
Don’t have time to make it now? Pin it for later!
