Such a great summer recipe. The sweet grilled peaches with the peppery arrugala and the salty cheese. The perfect side dish, or add your favorite grilled meat and turn it into a meal.


  • 4 large ripe peaches sliced
  • 1 red onion medium, sliced thin
  • 2 cups arrugala
  • ½ lb riccota salata
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/8 cup champagne vinegar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 shallot minced
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper


In a bowl combine sliced peaches, honey, 2 tbsp olive oil, salt and a pepper. Toss and then on a med/high grill cook the peaches 2 to 3 minutes per side or until you get nice grill marks on the peaches.

Remove from grill and set aside. In a small jar combine shallots, dijon mustard, lemon juice, champagne vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Cover the jar and shake until well combined.

In a salad bowl add arrugala, red onion and grilled peaches. Now add the dressing a little at a time until the lettuce is just coated. Transfer to a large serving plate and top with shaved riccota salata. Enjoy!!
