Grilled Peach Salad with Arugula and Goat Cheese
A fabulous salad for any meal.
- 6 fresh peaches or apricots, halved and pitted
- 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 teaspoons thyme leaves
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons pine nuts
- 1 1/2 teaspoons aged balsamic vinegar
- 4 ounces arugula stemmed
- 4 ounces goat cheese cut into 12 slices
Light a grill. In a medium bowl, toss the peaches with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and the thyme and season with salt and pepper. Let stand for 10 minutes.
Grill the peach halves over high heat for about 6 minutes, turning once, until lightly charred and softened.
Meanwhile, in a small skillet, toast the pine nuts over moderate heat, stirring, until golden, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer the nuts to a cutting board and finely chop.
Put the pine nuts in a medium bowl. Whisk in the vinegar and the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add the arugula and toss. Arrange the goat cheese slices on plates. Top with arugula salad and then grilled peaches and serve right away.
