Charred Onion and Peach Salad



  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1 onion, sliced in rings
  • 2 peaches, quartered
  • bacon (optional)
  • 1\4 cup smoked bleu cheese
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon champagne vinaigrette

*All things grilled are doing on indirect heat (your top rack) I also like to use shallow grill pans for the onions.  I buy them at target and use them for everything.

Cook onions on grill until charred.  I also cooked the bacon on the grill at the same time.  Pull both from heat once they get the right ‘crispness’.  Mix together to cool and drizzle the honey on them.

Grill your peaches.  You want them to get the charred marks on them and begin to caramelize.  The juice will start to sort of boil on the peach.  Once this starts to happen pull them off to cool.  Drizzle with your balsamic.

In a bowl, combine your arugula and smoked bleu cheese.  Use your champagne vinaigrette. Mix and then ‘build’ your salad.  Arugula, onions, (bacon) and peaches.

This would make a great summer meal, serve with crusty french bread.
