GRILLED PEACH AND FETA SALAD
What’s great about it:
It’s summery, light and colourful. Although salads are typically a savoury dish adding some fruit can help you achieve the recommended 2 serves of fruit per day.
Serves 4 | Prep time 15 minutes | Cook time 5 minutes
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
½ teaspoon crushed black pepper
2 teaspoons honey
3 ripe peaches, halved, de-seeded
4 cups Rocket
1/4 of red onion, finely sliced
1/3 cup pecans, roughly chopped or crumbled
60g feta or fresh goat cheese
PLACE the oil, vinegar, and pepper in a jar, shake until combined. Combine 2 tablespoons of this mixture with the honey and brush over the cut surfaces of the peaches.
HEAT a non-stick grill pan (or BBQ) to high. Place peaches cut side down, on the hot grill.
GRILL peaches for 2 minutes or until golden brown, remove, cool. Slice thickly.
PLACE rocket, sliced grilled peaches, red onion, pecans, and fresh goat cheese in a large salad bowl. Drizzle with salad dressing. Gently toss and serve immediately.
