I’m all about grilling right now! BBQ’d everything, throwing things under the grill! This time of year I don’t feel like standing over a hot stove or spending much time in the kitchen at all. The sun is out in all her glory, it’s super hot and I want my recipes to be quick, light and healthy.

 

This beautiful, summery Grilled Peach & Chicken Salad ticks all of those boxes! The chicken takes only a 5 minutes to grill to retain it’s tenderness, and the ripe peaches add a wonderful sweetness which is balanced out by the salty feta cheese. Crisp salad leaves and crunchy beetroot form the base.

 

The flavours are deliciously delicate and peach so succulent, that the only sauce needed is a simple balsamic and olive oil dressing. It’s perfection when accompanied with a glass of Tomato Gazpacho!
