Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 fresh peaches, halved and pit removed
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1/4 red onion, finely chopped (optional)
  • 8 c. spring mix
  • 2 c. arugula
  • 8 oz cooked/grilled chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 8 fresh basil leaves, rolled and finely chopped
  • 4 oz. goat cheese, crumbled
  • 4 T. dried cherries
  • 4 T. sliced almonds
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 4 T. balsamic vinegar – use a good thick quality one! (I like to use an 18 year aged balsamic)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the grill to medium heat.
  2. Cut the peaches into slices that will fit on the grill without falling through, or if grilling in halves, just cut in half, remove pit.
  3. Brush peaches with oil (both sides). Grill for 2-3 minutes on each side if using pieces, 4-5 minutes if using halves. Remove to a plate.
  4. To make 4 individual salads, on each plate place: 2 c. spring mix, 1/2 c. arugula, few tablespoons of red onions, 2 oz cooked chicken, 1/4 of the peaches, 2 finely chopped basil leaves, 1 T. dried cherries, 1 T. sliced almonds, 1 oz. goat cheese, sprinkle of salt and pepper and about 1 T. balsamic vinegar. Eat immediately or if serving later, reserve the balsamic vinegar and drizzle on before serving.
