It’s been five years since we’ve featured a grilled peach. Five very long years.
How is that possible? When you take one of summer’s most delicious and juiciest fruits and add a little barbecue heat – magic!
And when you take that grilled peach and add some salty halloumi and a perfectly ripe tomato, the epitome of summer right there. End of summer I should say. Can you believe it? No, me either. In fact, I’m in denial so let’s never mention it again, okay?
Think of this salad as a summer version of our Maple Roasted Squash and Seared Halloumi Salad. But dare I say, it’s even better because, well, everything is better in the summer sun. It’s really got everything you want in a salad – salty, savoury, sweet and CROUTONS! If you ever find yourself a little unsatisfied after eating a salad, take a little lookie and see if you are missing out on some uber satisfying carbs. In order for a meal to really fit the bill for me, it’s gotta have it all – protein, fat, and carbs. If you’re missing one of these components in your meal, you’re probably going to be left feeling a little unfulfilled. And that is really no fun at all.
Not going to happen on my watch, and not going to happen after you eat this salad. As per usual in this house, there was also a deconstructed version served for the little ones who aren’t always apt to eating a plate of salad. Some grilled halloumi, tomatoes, peaches, croutons, and dressing were left in separate bowls for them to pick and choose what they wanted. Kind of like a DIY salad bar.
And I can tell you there was not a grilled peach left untouched. Make this salad ASAP, before it’s too late!
