In our last column, we wrote about a salad with blackberries, sweet honeydew melon and spicy arugula. The combination was such a hit, we wanted to share another great salad this week. Ah, the peach — a classic sign of summer, a staple in warm-weather recipes for desserts and salads, an anticipated addition to farmers’ markets and stands across the country from June through August. A large peach has fewer than 70 calories and contains 3 grams of fiber. It’s also a good source of vitamins A and C.
This one recipe has definitely moved to the top of our list for favorite summertime salads. We start with sweet grilled peaches and throw in spicy arugula again (Joy’s favorite), creamy fresh mozzarella and sprinkle on crunchy pine nuts… It’s simple enough to put together for a light weeknight meal, but fancy enough to serve as a starter at your next dinner party.
