Ingredients

For the Dressing

  • 4 TB extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 TB white wine vinegar
  • TB pure maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper (to taste)

For the Salad

  • 2 peaches (cut into 8 slices each, pits removed)
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 6 mint leaves (torn into small pieces)
  • ½ cup english cucumber (sliced and halved)
  • ½ cup fresh mozzarella (torn into pieces)
  • ½ cup pecans (toasted)

Instructions

  1. Mix together dressing ingredients in a small bowl or jar. Combine well.

  2. Preheat grill (BBQ) to medium. Lightly brush peach slices on both sides and place cut side down on hot grill for about 5 minutes per side. Peaches will be done when grill marks appear and peaches become slightly soft. Transfer to plate and cool.

  3. In a large serving bowl, layer spinach, arugula, mint, cucumber, fresh mozzarella and pecans. Top with grilled peaches.

  4. Drizzle salad evenly with dressing. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

For added protein, this grilled peach salad pairs well with chicken or salmon.

This salad can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the fridge. Hold pecans and dressing until right before serving.
