When menu planning for a day like Mother’s Day, I often go back and forth about what to serve that’s just as tasty as it is beautiful.  And there’s one thing I know for sure: I’m serving this Grilled Georgia Peach Salad again this year (and all summer long).  While Mama K and I shot our Mother’s Day brunch inspiration with J.McLaughlin, we were the most excited about devouring this salad, along with all the cheese, once the shoot was wrapped! 

Fitting of any Georgia gal, I love pretty much peach-anything, and grilled peaches take that love to a whole new level, let me tell you. There’s something about the way the juicy fruit softens, sweetens and turns golden brown, exploding with the taste of summer in each bite. Grilling the peaches gives the fruit a new dimension to its sweetness, and paired with tangy fig balsamic, bitter arugula, herbed goat cheese, sweet snap peas and candied pecans…it’s just all a little unreal and has me excited about salads again.

And of course you know (or at least if you follow along) how I always talk about texture with my dishes, and this grilled peach salad hits the mark. The tender grilled peaches + fresh pop of snap peas + crunch of the candied pecans makes for one wonderful bite every time.  Tell me, have you fired up the grill this season yet?!  Truly, MKR

    Can you give me the recipe for the fig balsamic dressing for your peach salad? Can’t wait to make this dish!

    Great recipe! I candied my own pecans, and next time we will make our own fig balsamic. But the sugar snap peas, herbed goat cheese and grilled peaches were all new ideas that turned out amazing! Thanks.
