The grilled peaches are the star of the salad. I brush them with a little bit of the dressing and have Josh grill them until they are soft, sweet, juicy, and lined with grilled marks. I let them cool to room temperature and slice them so they are ready for my salad!

To make the salad, I start with a bed of arugula and then add grilled peaches, blueberries, crumbled goat cheese, and Marcona almonds. If you can’t find Marcona almonds, feel free to use regular almonds or your favorite nut. Pecans would also be good!

The dressing is light and simple to whisk up. It just gives the salad a splash of sweetness and flavor!
