Try this bright, fresh and tasty summer salad with sweet grilled peaches and strawberries. It’s a delicious way to use thee grill for more than just burgers!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 8 large fresh strawberries, halved
  • 2 large ripe peaches, cut into quarters or sixths
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup whole almonds (unsalted), roasted and roughly crushed

 

Zesty Ginger Dressing

  • 1 heaped teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 heaped teaspoon ginger, freshly grated
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Freshly ground back pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Place strawberries, peaches, avocado oil, and black pepper into a bowl.
  2. Stir carefully to make sure the oil coats the fruit.
  3. Heat grill to medium and place fruit face down on the grill surface. Cook until you see “grill lines” (around 3-4 minutes), then flip over and cook for a few more minutes.
  4. Monitor the fruit as it cooks and remove it when ready. Set aside and keep warm.
  5. While the fruit is grilling, prepare the zesty ginger dressing. Add all dressing ingredients into a small bowl and whisk well to combine.
  6. Build the summer salad by placing a bed of spinach at the bottom of a medium salad bowl, then top with sugar snap peas, warm grilled fruit, and toasted crushed almonds.
  7. Drizzle with dressing and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If not eating the salad right away, allow the fruit to cool on a side plate. Add the grilled fruit and dressing just before serving.
