Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe, delicious smelling peaches, halved
  • 6 oz baby arugula (or other favorite green)
  • ¼ cup crumbled goat cheese, or fresh mini mozzarella balls
  • ¼ of a red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds
  • 10 basil leaves, cut into ribbons. Purple basil is pretty.

White Balsamic Vinaigrette

  • 2 ½  tablespoons balsamic vinegar ( white balsamic is nice, or use regular)
    1 Tablespoon honey or maple
    4 Tablespoons olive oil
    generous pinch salt and pepper

Instructions

If grilling the peaches, preheat the grill. ( You don’t have to grill them)

Mix the vinaigrette together in a small bowl or jar.

Wash peaches, rubbing the fuzz off with your fingers under running water ( or uses a dry towel). Half the peaches, scoop out the seeds and brush with a little olive oil. Grill for 4-6 minutes over medium heat uncovered until they have noticeable grill marks. Using a metal spatula gently turn over and grill one more minute. Try to keep peach in tact. Cut peaches into wedges.

Toss greens, onions, basil leaves, slivered almonds and goat cheese in a medium bowl with some of the vinaigrette.. You may have some leftover. Place the grilled peaches on top,  sprinkle witih optional nasturshim petals.

Notes

Grilling the peaches is optional. If peaches are very juicy and ripe, no need to grill.
