{NEW} Grilled Peach Quinoa Salad with Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette 🍑🌱🍅

A Summertime Salad idea that’s packed with interesting flavor combinations! Those juicy warm peaches, combined with the spicy jalapenos drizzled in sweet balsamic dressing…

WOW! I could truly eat this all Season and be VERY happy about it!

If you’re looking for a satisfying, meatless meal to serve during the warmer months – THIS is it!

I also think this Salad would also be pretty great with grilled chicken or shrimp!

Quinoa is gluten-free, high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contain all nine essential amino acids.

It is also high in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E and various beneficial antioxidants. Makes 4 servings
Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 4 small peaches, pitted and quartered
  • 2 cups mixed cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 2 small jalapeños, seeded and sliced
  • sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste

Balsamic vinaigrette:

  • 4 Tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbsps balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsps raw honey
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon each)

First, make your vinaigrette: add all the ingredients to a small jar and shake vigorously to combine, or whisk all dressing ingredients well in a small bowl. Heat up your grill on medium and spray with avocado oil. Add your sliced peaches, then grill for about 2 minutes on each side. We want them warm and juicy with nice grill marks. To assemble your salads; add cooked quinoa, cherry tomatoes, olives, onions, jalapeño, and grilled peaches, equally onto a large bowl or platter, or onto serving dishes.Drizzle each salad with a bit of your homemade balsamic vinaigrette. Taste test and adjust the seasonings if desired.

Enjoy!
