This summer meal is making me feel peachy keen.

Can I tell you a secret? I’m actually not the biggest fan of peaches. Or, at least, I USED to not be a fan of them. Recently, I’ve been baking and cooking them in various ways, and I’ve grown a liking to the fruit.

My dislike for peaches likely stemmed from a childhood experience of mine. I was in elementary school, and we were having a party. One of my teachers served artificial peach juice and its taste totally threw me off. Since then, I have always associated this fruit with the same off-putting flavour, which explains why I haven’t been into them much.

But, I guess I’ve been missing out.

When I spotted a pile of fresh peaches at our local organic grocery store I thought, “Hey, let’s just give this another shot.” I mean, I’ve been baking peach cobblers, cakes, etc. for my family this past year, so I have been warming up to the fruit. I won’t, however, gobble it up like I would a strawberry rhubarb pie, for instance – but a start is a start, right?

Joe was ecstatic when he saw me reaching for the peaches. When he asked me what we’d do with them, I quickly said: “Grill ‘em, like what we’ve been doing for everything else this summer!” And it’s totally true. Joe and I have been busy barbequing nearly all of our meals.

So, how do you grill peaches?

Well, friends, I’m glad to report that it’s really not hard at all! First off, our peaches weren’t overly ripe. This is ideal because it ensures they won’t cook too quickly and get mushy. Second, we put them on pieces of foil – but this is totally optional. We get picky about our BBQ getting messy, but putting them directly on the grill will leave you with those beautiful charred markings. It’s all a matter of preference!

With our grilled peaches, I made the tastiest Grilled Peach Salad. I’m eager to share the recipe here today, because I think it makes for the perfect, light summer dinner.

Today, we're sharing our step-by-step instructions on how to grill your own peaches so that you can make this delicious Grilled Peach Salad. And you know what? It'll totally wow your guests!

Cutting Peaches

Cutting peaches are very much like cutting avocados. You cut it in half, right where the pit is, and twist! I find that they’re much harder to twist than avocados, so you might have to put in a bit more elbow grease to split it.

This summer, I had a blast experimenting with ingredients and flavors to make my own salad dressings. Growing up, we were always quick to purchase ready-made ones but, they’re a lot easier to whip up thank you think.

A touch of honey, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar gives my Grilled Peach Salad its sweet and salty taste. Plus, I’ve made it easy to remember by giving the ingredients a “3-2-1” measurement: 3 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar.

Toss It All Up

Once your peaches are grilled, toss it in with your arugula and bocconcini. Then, drizzle it with the honey dressing and top it off with balsamic glaze and crushed almonds.

  1. There’s still plenty of summer left and this peach salad looks like something I’d like to have a few times before we kiss warm weather and ripe peaches goodbye. Lovely presentation on your photos!

  2. We have not done grilled fruit very often, but I think it is something we need to do more of! We have never tried grilled peaches before, but these look delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  3. I have been eating a bunch of salads this summer. It worked well since I ended up being home alone for most of the summertime. Cooking a meal for one person seems silly and with health problems choosing a salad with meat or cheese made more sense. I haven’t tried adding grilled fruit or fruit in general to my salad.

    I do love eating fresh peaches and I think it would go perfectly on a bed of greens. I’m going to have to give this recipe a try.

  4. This salad looks really good. I love the idea of having it with peaches in it. That must taste delicious. I’m always looking for ways to make salads different too.

  5. 5 stars
    This is a great recipe! We have so many peaches here in SC they’re coming out our ears so having something we haven’t tried before is awesome.

  6. Funny coz lately I have been interested to anything with peach. In fact, as I encounter this I am eating at a restaurant, Peach Boy. That peach recipe is a must. Haven’t tried peaches with all greens.

  7. I’m not a huge peach fan but I LOVE grilled peaches. This is the perfect summer salad and I can’t wait to make it!
