While the grill is hot, here’s an easy grilled peach salad with a lovely honey-dijon dressing that will complement those burgers perfectly at your next backyard BBQ!
Ingredients
  • 3 peaches, slightly soft
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup fresh chives, chopped roughly
  • 1 tbsp whole grain dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tbsp regular dijon (I actually had an apricot brandy flavored dijon that I used!)
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • pinch of garlic powder
  • crumbled gorgonzola
  • walnut pieces
Instructions
  1. Slice peaches into thin slices and line up, evenly spaced, on a wooden skewer.
  2. Combine all dressing ingredients (mustard through garlic powder) in a small bowl and whisk until well incorporated.
  3. Combine spinach and chives in a large bowl.
  4. Preheat grill to medium heat. Grill peach skewers about 2 minutes per side, until slightly charred. Remove from heat and toss into bowl with spinach.
  5. Drizzle dressing over salad and toss.
  6. Top with crumbled gorgonzola and walnut pieces.
