The Perfect Peach Arugula Summer Salad
We absolutely love this simple salad! It combines all the ideal components of the perfect summer salad: leafy greens, sweet summertime peaches, and a tangy fruit infused balsamic drizzle. Best of all, it takes almost no time at all to throw together! We hope you enjoy it at your end of summer BBQ with all the people that mean the most to you.
- Heat up a small pan on a medium-high heat. Toast almond flakes until browned and fragrant. Watch them closely as they can burn quickly.
- To roast the peaches, slice each peach into 10 to 12 wedges. Heat up a cast iron skillet on a medium-high heat and brush it with a bit of olive oil. Place peaches on hot skillet, raw side down, for about 2 minutes on each side until lightly charred. If you’re already BBQ’ing, lightly toss them in some EVOO and throw them right on the grill!
- Toss spring mix, arugula, and red onion in a small amount (1-2 tsp) of olive oil. Season with salt and a small amount of black pepper.
- Place salad base at the bottom of a large platter. Arrange grilled peaches on top and sprinkle with roasted almonds. Drizzle Sonoma Harvest Strawberry Dark Balsamic Vinegar on top and decorate with fresh basil and an extra grind of black pepper.
