Grilled Peach Salad with Tarragon Vinaigrette ~ We made it. We made it through summer. There were a few moments when I wasn’t so sure but, here we are with one week left and it’s time to scoop up our back-to-school supplies ~ woohoo! My kiddos are in a year round school-ish type of program and this week I am reminded of that fun commercial that was out a couple of years ago. Do you remember the one? There’s woman happily prancing through the isles of the store and the song “The most wonderful time of the year” is playing in the background — yes to that. I have stepped up my summer salad game to celebrate this occasion. Texas peaches are in abundance right now and while they are wonderful straight on their own, tossing peaches on the grill gives them a caramelized-type of sweetness that does wonders for the tastebuds. Pair these half circles of goodness with a salty cheese such as blue (or feta) over a mixed green salad with a simple tarragon dressing and you’ve got a celebration on a plate. Bring this dish home for dinner by topping it with some grilled chicken or fish if you want a hearty dish. If you have one month before it’s go time for school, hang in there and enjoy this salad with a BIG glass of wine.
Slice these in half, remove the pits, brush with a neutral oil such as safflower or canola, then grill.
Serve with mixed greens, blue cheese, and this easy tarragon vinaigrette ~ delish!
