Why does a grill make everything taste better?
It’s probably that burnt, charred taste that I love. Mmmmmm… carcinogens! I know, it’s not good to eat burnt things, but I love it! At least I don’t eat it all that often.
Anyway, summer is officially here and it’s also peach season! Luckily Summer hasn’t been too awful in Texas. It was pretty hot last week, but this week it has been in the 90’s and beautiful! I love hot Summer nights. Unfortunately, it’s usually too hot (even at night) for my friends and they want to sit in the AC! I just don’t understand, but I make sure give them a hard time about it :)
This summer peach salad is perfect. You won’t have to heat up your house by cooking, and this light but satiating salad will keep you in summer shape.
You don’t need much. Just grab some peaches, greens, goat cheese, avocado and balsamic glaze! The tangy goat cheese combined with the sweet peaches and balsamic are phenomenal. Top it with some mixed greens, arugula and avocado and you’ve got yourself one hell of a bite.
What are your favorite summer salads?
Happy Summer and Happy 4th of July! Y’all be safe out there!
