Strawberry Grilled Peach Salad

A light and refreshing summer grilled peach spinach salad with sliced strawberries and homemade salad dressing.  Serve for lunch or as a side dish.

Summer is my favorite season and with good reason.  I can’t get enough fresh fruit and vegetables from the farmer’s market.  Maybe it’s the cookouts with friends or picnics at the beach.  Maybe it’s the lighter menu for lunch and dinner.  One thing I know for sure is that my fridge is stocked with fresh produce and meals usually take 20 minutes or less to make.

Strawberry Grilled Peach Salad

What I love most about this salad is that the peaches are grilled.  If you’ve never had a hot peach, you’re missing out on one of life’s little pleasures.

The grill marks are beautiful and warm peaches taste great with salads and ice cream…because you’ve got to stay cooled down this time of year, too!

Strawberry Peach Salad

These peaches can me made with a grill pan and a little oil to prevent them from sticking to the pan.  They can also be made on the grill next to burgers and chicken and served as a side dish.

    The mix of the saltiness of the feta cheese and the sweetness of the strawberries and peach sounds delicious

    Yummy salad! That looks absolutely gorgeous and I can just imagine the flavour from that awesome combo! I’ve tried a strawberry salad before but never with grilled peach, and adding feta is ALWAYS a good decision. Thanks for sharing.

    This salad goes straight to my heart! I am a huge salad fan, but more than that, I am a georgia peach who loves her peaches grilled! This salad is a must-try for me!
