Grilled Peach and Avocado Salad

I had every intention of adding some grilled chicken, but I forgot all about it, I was eating this salad, Grilled Peach and Avocado Salad, out of the bowl over the kitchen sink.

Grilled Peach and Avocado Salad Recipe

Thank you for bearing with me the last few days. Between the craziness over at The Creative Mama, (good crazy, the Creative Photographer Series has been fabulous this year!), and my website going down, it has been a crazy week. Thankfully, everything worked out, and as you can see, I am back in business. Not without some little glitches here and there, damage to my nerves, and having to cut ties with my long-time hosting company. I learned a thing or two about customer service that is for sure.

Back to the food. This salad is probably my favorite thing that I have made all summer. I had no idea when the idea came into my head that this salad would be even a fraction of the amazing that it is. Baby mozzarella, grilled avocados, and grilled peaches, with lots of fresh herbs. I had every intention of adding some grilled chicken, but I forgot all about it, I was eating this salad, Grilled Peach and Avocado Salad, out of the bowl over the kitchen sink. I love the bites of basil and parsley, they pop in your mouth. I love using fresh herbs as a salad green. It just adds such a brightness that cuts the bitterness of the arugula. I had never grilled an avocado before, but I love what the grill does not only to the color, but it adds a touch of smokiness that is just perfect with everything else going on in this salad.

Step 4: Place the peaches and the avocados slice side down on the grill. Grill for a few minutes, you want some grill lines on the fruit. but you do not want them to turn to mush.

I’ve been making this salad for probably close to 10 years now and I’m finally getting around to saying thank you for posting it. I love meal prepping this salad for lunch all week. I often add grilled chicken, fish or even prosciutto, and sometimes top it with some sliced almonds or toasted quinoa for crunch. So happy that it’s summertime because this salad is on my menu this week. Thanks again!

This is one of my favorite salads - ever! Wonderful. I made it last year many times and couldn't wait for peaches to come back into season to make it again. Thank you.
