Grilled peach summer salad with mozzarella & arugula

You need:

For the salad:

  • 2 peaches, quartered
  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups arugula
  • fresh mozzarella, torn in pieces
  • 1 avocado, cut in slices
  • a handful of pine nuts, toasted
  • salt & pepper

For the balsamic glaze:

  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of palm sugar

How to make it:

  1. In a bowl, coat the peaches in olive oil and sprinkle with a small pinch of salt.
  2. Heat your grill to medium high heat. Place the peaches on the hot grill, cut-side down, and cook for about 3 minutes on each side. Set aside to cool.
  3. In the meantime you prepare the balsamic glaze. Mix the vinegar and sugar in a saucepan on medium heat. Turn down the heat when it starts to boil, let simmer until it thickens. Keep stirring frequently.
  4. Coat the arugula in a little bit of olive oil and sea salt. Assemble the salad. I started with the arugula first, before adding the avocado, then the peaches, mozzarella and toasted pine nuts. Sprinkle with a little bit of balsamic glaze and add a squeeze of lemon juice. Best enjoyed right away.
