Peach and Cheese Grilled Salad


  • 1 1/2 cup basil leaves finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil plus 4 Tbsp
  • kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup green beans
  • 4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 peaches pitted and halved
  • 6 ounces cheese: halloumi, queso fresco, or paneer sliced
  • 4 cups mixed greens
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts toasted


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the basil, garlic, lemon juice and rice vinegar. Gradually whisk in ⅓ cup olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans and blanch for 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water to cool completely.
  • Preheat a grill or grill pan over high heat. Brush the remaining olive oil evenly over the peaches and cheese. Working in batches, grill the peaches and cheese until well charred, about 3 minutes per side.
  • Arrange the mixed greens on a large platter. Top with the green beans, peaches and cheese. Drizzle with the dressing and garnish with the pine nuts.
