Peach Salad with Blue Cheese & Toasted Almonds


1 bunch fresh arugula, washed and dried and torn into pieces
¼ cup blue cheese, crumbled
1 large peach, halved and pit removed
¼ cup slivered almonds, lightly toasted
2 tablespoons balsamic reduction (instructions below)


1. Heat the grill to medium and places the peaches cut side down directly on the grill over indirect heat (to the side of the flame.) Cook for about 1 minute and then remove from the place and slip off the warm skin. Cut into slices and set aside.

2. In a large salad bowl toss the dried arugula, blue cheese, and almonds. Top the salad with the peaches slices and drizzle with the balsamic reduction.

3. To make the balsamic reduction: Add 1 cup of balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan and warm over medium heat. Cook until the mixture is reduced to 1/3 cup. Reserve remaining reduction for other uses.

Naptime Recipe Serving ideas

We ate this with some grilled burgers, but it would be great served with all sorts of things in the summer.  For milder flavors try using goat cheese or feta instead
