Salad of Grilled Tenderstem®, Peaches & Goats’ Cheese…

Salad of Grilled Tenderstem®, Peaches & Goats’ Cheese…

This simple salad is bursting with freshness and flavor. When it’s hot outside try using a barbeque instead of a griddle for a perfect alfresco dish!

Serves 4


 Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes

You’ll need:

  • 200g Tenderstem®, stems cut in half
  • 3 ripe peaches, stone removed and cut in quarters
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 100g baby spinach leaves
  • 150g goats cheese log (we used Kidderton Ash), cut into 1cm slices
  • Small bunch fresh basil, leaves picked and torn
  • Freshly ground black pepper and sea salt



For the dressing:

  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp good quality balsamic vinegar



To serve:

  • Crusty ciabatta, cut into slices



What to do:

  1. Pre heat a griddle pan until smoking hot – this will take about 10 minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss the Tenderstem® and peach quarters in the olive oil and season with a little freshly ground black pepper and sea salt.
  3. Cook the Tenderstem® and peaches on the hot griddle for about 5 minutes, turning a few times, until they are just tender and marked with griddle-lines.
  4. Arrange the spinach leaves on a serving platter, top with the cooked Tenderstem® and peaches and add the goats cheese slices.
  5. Sprinkle with the torn basil leaves and dress with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. 
  6. Serve immediately with plenty of crusty ciabatta to soak up the delicious juices.

    That actually looks super yummy. I go out of my way for a great salad. My husband thinks I am nuts! But my dinner last night was a great salad, salmon sashimi, and a cup tea. Can it get better than that! Also, nice photography. I will have to give this recipe a chance. Newest follower via the SSS.My site http://hmmargazi.blogspot.com
