Raspberry Salad with Grilled Peaches

Here’s a perfect and light salad for summer, especially great something like grilled chicken or swordfish. This version was adapted from one I found in Cuisine Magazine.

Raspberry Salad with Grilled Peaches 

1/2 c slivered almonds, toasted
1/4 c red wine vinegar
1 1/4 c fresh raspberries, divided
2 T honey, divided
2 T fresh tarragon, chopped
1 T minced shallot or vidalia onion
1/4 c olive oil + 1 T
salt and pepper to taste
2 peaches, halved, pitted

Preheat Grill to med-high. Whisk together vinegar, 1/4 c raspberries, 1 T honey, tarragon, and shallots. Drizzle in oil, whisking constantly. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, combine 1 T honey and 1 T oil. Brush onto peashes. Grill peaches until marked, ~3 min per side.

Toss salad greens with dressing. Serve with more raspberries, almonds, and the peaches.
