Grilled Peach, Goat Cheese & Agave Nectar over Arugula

The perfect bite!

The perfect bite!

This was one of those recipes I was so proud of when I was done because it was "invented" along the way! Sounds easy to most people but, not me, I am measure after all.. My little pinch could come up with this in her sleep!

When peaches are fresh, there's nothing like them! A must and in the summer, grilled peaches are an even bigger MUST!

What you need for 4 servings:

  • 4 ripe peaches, halved & pitted
  • 2 cups Arugula
  • 1/4 cup Agave Nectar
  • 4 oz log of Goat Cheese
  • Kosher Salt
  • Pepper grinder

Fire up your grill, yay! Heat to medium-high, please :)

Once your peaches are halved, brush both sides with olive oil or drizzle it on, whatever is easier for you. I like the brush because it equally distributes the oil (there's a shocker!) but, not everyone has a brush for olive oil so, a drizzle is fine.

Place your peaches on the grill, juicy center side down and close the lid. Cook peaches for 3-4 minutes, flip to the other side for 2 minutes. Voila!

Sprinkle the arugula across the bottom of a shallow bowl, slice the halves into quarters and place on the arugula, now sprinkle your little yule log of goat cheese onto the rest of the ingredients.

Here comes the Agave Nectar! Sprinkle all around the top of the peaches, top with Kosher salt and pepper to taste.

Gently toss this together, as it's technically not a salad but, a side to whatever you're serving.

As always, enjoy & let us know what you think!  xo Measure
