Olive-Me & Co.'s White Peach Salad

Adapted from Sylvia Fountaine, Feasting at Home Blog- June-1-2012

Ingredients:

  • 3 peaches
  • 6 oz arugula
  • mild sheep’s milk cheese, chèvre, fresh goat cheese, or fresh mozzarella
  • 1/8 cup almonds, toasted and slivered
  • Purple basil leaves
  • Nasturtiums (optional)

Vinaigrette:

  • 2 ½ tablespoons Olive-Me & Co.’s Peach Flavoured White Balsamic Vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons Olive-Me & Co.’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil (plain or flavoured)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

 

Instructions:

  1. Mix the vinaigrette. Cut peaches in half and discard the pits. Brush peaches with some vinaigrette and place flesh down on a preheated grill at medium. Let grill for 4-6 minutes uncovered until they have noticeable grill marks. Gently turn over and grill for 1 minute. Cut peaches into wedges.
  2. Toss arugula, basil and almonds with the vinaigrette. Store remaining vinaigrette in a sealed container, and place in cool, dark cupboard. Make a bed of greens, and place grilled peaches on top with bits of cheese. Sprinkle basil and nasturtium petals on top.
