Grilled Peach Salad with Pecans is a delicious summer peach salad recipe using a combination of seasonal fruits, greens, pecans and a fig balsamic dressing. 



6 cups arugula 

1/2 pint blueberries

1/2 pint blackberries

1/2 red onion, sliced thin

1/2 cup pecans

1/2 tablespoon maple syrup

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper 


4 tablespoons  extra virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons fig balsamic vinegar

1/2 tablespoon maple syrup

1 teaspoon rosemary, chopped

salt & pepper

3 yellow peaches

olive oil spray


5 cups bread, cubed

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 tablespoon rosemary, chopped

olive oil spray


  1. Clean and prep salad ingredients – arugula (or other favorite greens), blueberries, blackberries and red onions. Set aside.
  2. Prepare salad dressing ingredients in a small measuring cup.
  3. *Optional – bake croutons if adding to the salad to make “Peachy Panzanella Salad”.
  4. Spread pecans on a parchment lined baked°sheet. Coat with maple syrup using your hands to spread evenly. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper using more (up to 1/4 teaspoon)  if you want a bigger kick! Bake at 375 ° for approximately 5 minutes.
  5. Heat an iron cast grill pan or outdoor grill on medium heat. Cut each peach in half, removing the pit with a spoon. Spray the cut side with olive oil. 
  6. Spray grill with olive oil. Place peaches on grill, cut side down, and cook for 3 minutes. Turn using a spatula or tongs and cook the other side for 3 minutes. Remove from grill and set aside.
  7. Arrange all of the salad ingredients in a bowl or on separate plates. Slice the peaches, top the salad with peaches and drizzle with fig dressing. Enjoy!


*Optional: I sometimes like to add bread for a “Peachy Panzanella Salad”. Cube, season & bake bread cubes at 275 ° for 10 minutes or until crisp.
