For the salad:

  • 4 ripe peaches, halved and pitted
  • Olive oil, for brushing
  • 8 cups of mixed salad greens
  • 1 cup of crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup of pecans, toasted
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

For the vinaigrette:

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Brush the cut sides of the peaches with olive oil.
  2. Place the peaches on the grill, cut side down, and grill for about 5 minutes, or until the peaches have nice grill marks and are slightly softened.
  3. While the peaches are grilling, prepare the vinaigrette. In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, honey, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  4. In a large salad bowl, combine the salad greens, crumbled feta, toasted pecans, and sliced onion.
  5. Once the peaches are done, remove them from the grill and allow them to cool slightly. Then, slice them into wedges.
  6. Add the grilled peach slices to the salad. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the top, tossing gently to combine.
  7. Serve the salad immediately, with extra vinaigrette on the side.

Enjoy this refreshing and tasty summer salad! The combination of the sweet, smoky peaches with the tangy feta and crunchy pecans is truly irresistible. Plus, it’s light, healthy, and perfect for those hot summer days.
