Grilled Peach Salad
This post is sponsored by Prima® Wawona.
This Grilled Peach Salad is the most refreshing summer salad recipe. The peaches are grilled until a golden crust is developed, served over arugula, roasted pecans, goat cheese and covered with a homemade honey dijon vinaigrette dressing.
If you have never grilled peaches, we challenge you to do it soon! The golden crust that is formed and the caramelization from the natural sugars found in peaches make them a warm treat your entire family will enjoy.
