Salad Dishes for BBQ


This one has moved to the top of my list for favorite summertime dishes. Sweet grilled peaches, spicy arugula, creamy fresh mozzarella, crunchy pine nuts, and herb-y pesto… It’s simple enough to put together for a light weeknight meal, but fancy enough to serve as a starter at your next dinner party.

grilled peach salad & mint pesto

  • 2 firm, yet ripe peaches
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • a few dollops of pesto
  • sprinkle of toasted pine nuts
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 packed cup of a mix of mint & basil
  • ¼ cup pine nuts, toasted (you could also use walnuts instead)
  • ½ garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • juice and zest from ½ a lemon
  • ¼ cup olive oil (or more)
  • a few pinches of red pepper flakes
  1. Slice the peaches into 6 segments per peach. In a small bowl, toss peaches with olive oil, balsamic, and just a small pinch of salt.
  2. Heat your grill (or grill pan) to medium high heat and brush it with some oil. Place the peach slices on the hot grill and cook each side for 2-3 minutes without moving them (near the end you can gently peek to see how your grill marks are coming along). When your peaches are grilled, set aside and allow them to cool to room temperature.
  3. Meanwhile make the pesto. Combine all ingredients in a small food processor and pulse to combine. Add more oil for a smoother pesto, or leave it chunky - whichever consistency you prefer.
  4. Toss the arugula with just a little bit of olive oil and a few pinches of salt. Assemble on a platter and top with mozzarella slices, peaches, dollops of pesto, and a few pinches of red pepper flakes. Squeeze just a bit of lemon on top and serve.
