Summer is here! The season of peaches, tomatoes, porches, and swimming holes. Our fridge is already packed to gills with luscious peaches, and we are enjoying every minute of it! In honor of all things Summer, we’ve partnered with a fantastic group of bloggers and Instagrammers who love peaches just as much as we do!
Raw, grilled, or marinated; you name it, and we’re sure to like peaches prepared whatever your method. We have just moved to a new cabin, and have a lovely little nook for our grill, so why not fire it up?! Going for a lighter, yet filling and satisfying dish, we created a wonderful salad that we will surely be making again very soon. We marinated the peaches in a simple blend of mustard and balsamic, and paired them with peppery arugula, cherry tomatoes, toasted walnuts, grilled avocado, blue cheese (optional), and dressed with a tarragon vinaigrette. We took the opportunity to use the peach skin to make some beautiful peach skin candy to sprinkle over the top, and we sure are glad we did. It’s optional, but we say go for it!
This recipe will serve four portions, with some leftover vinaigrette for later. Since we already had the grill hot, we grilled up some melted garlic bread, and that turned out to be a fantastic addition.
