If you don’t already know by my blog name (Healthy Little Peach), I am obsessed with peaches. I not only call all my friends “Peaches” but I love eating them. This Grilled Peach Steak Salad is absolutely perfect for summer. It is so fresh and light and the peaches gives it a sweetness that pairs perfectly with the savory bacon and flank steak. Also, my Peach Vinaigrette dressing is my new favorite EVERYTHING. I told my husband he better keep a eye on me because he may catch me in the kitchen drinking it. Yeah ya’ll, its that flipping good.
Sweet and savory meals are so delightful, especially in the summer when there are so many seasonal veggie and fruit options Peaches are the best right now and I try to incorporate them in my dishes as much as possible in the summer months. I use them a lot in desserts, but I am a big fan of them grilled and thrown on top of a salad. You wouldn’t think grilling them would change the taste that much, but it brings out even more flavor. The grill will caramelize them and makes them even sweeter.
To build this beautiful summer salad, I use crisp arugula, fresh red onions, pecans, crispy bacon and avocados. I try to keep the ingredients pretty simple because adding too much can take away from the salad instead of actually adding to it. The Peach Vinaigrette is the show stopper in this dish though, it adds a crazy amount of flavor.
The peach in the dressing gives it the right amount of sweetness without making it too overpowering and the coconut aminos gives it a beautiful balance. It is the perfect savory and sweet dressing that would be good on any salad, protein or veggies. If you bought peaches at your local farmer’s market and are needing a yummy recipe, give this tasty summer salad and dressing a try.
