Summer Tomato Salad with Grilled Peaches and Feta
That’s right, we said ‘grilled’ peaches, but don’t worry it’s easier than you think. Sweet Ontario peaches are now in season! We’re going to combine this tasty fruit with our Krinos feta to add some excitement to a simple heirloom Tomato Salad. This recipe plays on the perfect combination and contrast of the sweet peaches and salty feta, while highlighting these juicy and fresh heirloom tomatoes. This will sure be a treat, are you ready? Let’s get started!
Preheat a well-oiled barbeque to 350˚F to grill the peaches to perfection. As the grill is heating up, cut up your peaches in quarters and toss them in just enough oil that lightly coats them. Once the grill has reached its required temperature, place them cut side down on the barbeque. To achieve those nice grill marks, cook the peaches no longer than 2-4 minutes. Flip pieces to the other side and proceed to cook for an additional 2-4 minutes. Once completed, set aside your peaches, and begin to prepare your salad.
Cut your heirloom tomatoes into wedges or rounds approximately 1cm thick and cut the heirloom grape tomatoes in halves. These tomatoes are perfectly ripped and full of flavour as they thrive in the month of July! As they add an earthy, almost smoky sweetness to them that really complements this salad. Grab your favourite Krinos feta and crumble them into bite-sized or block sized pieces, we won’t tell!
As we begin to assemble the salad, layer the fresh sliced heirloom tomatoes onto a serving platter, then followed by the halved heirloom grape tomatoes. To enhance these flavours, use a pinch of flaky sea salt and cracked black pepper to season your tomatoes to the desired taste.
Once completed, nestle the grilled peaches in and around the seasoned tomatoes. Generously sprinkle Krinos Greek feta evenly across the dish, its rich buttery bite taste will dance with the sweetness of the peaches on your palate! As a finisher, top your dish with a drizzle of Krinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil followed by Krinos sweet Balsamic Glaze, then sprinkle in some fresh or flake basil leaves and your meal is ready to be served!
This dish is easy to whip up on those busy weeknights or will leave your guests wanting more! This Tomato salad with grilled peaches and feta will always be a classic summer staple, enjoy it while you can!
