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!

Take advantage of summer’s finest produce and make this Grilled Peach, Blueberry, and Goat Cheese Arugula Salad.

  1. I don’t need to tell you how beautiful and nutritious this vegetarian salad is, we all already know that! The way you craftily fit in arugula, whoop whoop.

    But I get all weird about goat cheese. NEVER HAVE HAD IT> only have eaten cheese from cows, kind of like eating deer, freaks me out. But maybe I should give it a try.

    Love the grilled peaches! Great idea.

    1. You don’t know what you are missing without feta or ‘goat cheese! We also love venison, the meat is leaner and healthier than beef. 

  2. We (over in Britanny,France) just had a wonderfull barbecue with this salad and the southwest pasta salad. Delicious! Our mexican friend loved it and even the frenchs liked it!

  3. I made this salad last night, and it was delicious. I changed a few things up based on what I had on hand. I didn’t have any white balsamic, so I used the palest I had – apricot flavored balsamic. I used smoked almonds and herb goat cheese because I had them. I also sprinkled on some sliced green onions that needed using. I loved this salad, and my wife (who’s not an arugula fan) loved it too. Score! Thanks for the great recipe.

  4. Looks amazing! Made it with a slight variation. Instead of almonds I candied some walnuts with maple syrup and cinnamon. Nom nom!!!!

  5. This was delicious! As someone who’s half-Italian, I always think I should like arugula more than I actually do. The sweetness of the fruit and honey balances the peppery bitterness of the arugula perfectly. Thank you so much!

  6. All these recipes look great and very tasty yet lack the nutritional values. I have found this for most of the offerings on Lose It.

    We can only guess or work it ourselves just how healthy the food is. Personally I’d rather someone tell me to save my effort!
