Grilled Peach Salad

Sooo...I'm kind of cheating you with this recipe today.

You might remember when I posted this recipe for strawberry feta salad a while back. Well, this is just a twist on that recipe. But remember how much I raved about that dressing? This one is just as good. You're going to love it. It's the perfect recipe for summer. 

I love peaches on the grill, and the dressing pairs perfectly with the salad because it has peach puree mixed right in. You don't even have to turn on your oven (well, okay, I guess the almonds are toasted, but you could do that ahead of time...or skip it all together), and it doesn't take too long to make. If you're looking for a great new salad, give this one a try, you won't be disappointed!

Grilled Peach and Chicken Salad
Adapted from this salad
Serves 4

For the salad:
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 cups lettuce (I used romaine)
  • 4 medium peaches
  • 1/2 cup toasted almonds
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta
For the Dressing:
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup diced peaches
  • 2 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
In a blender or food processor, whirl olive oil, peaches, vinegar, honey and salt until fully pureed.

Preheat BBQ to medium. Brush chicken with a little bit of the dressing, then season with salt and pepper. Grill chicken for 8 minutes, then flip and grill for another 8-10 minutes. Remove and let rest five minutes, then slice.

Divide lettuce among four plates and top with peaches, feta, almonds and chicken. Drizzle with dressing and serve.
