Sweet, smoky fruit, peppery greens and grains are the core ingredients of this grilled peach, corn and quinoa salad along with cherry tomatoes and pecorino.


For salad

2 ears of corn, shucked

2 peaches, sliced 1/2-inch thick

2 teaspoons olive oil

5 ounces baby arugula

1/2 cup cooked quinoa

1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes

1 ounce shaved pecorino

1 tablespoon minced chives

For vinaigrette

2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Preheat a gas or charcoal grill on high heat.

Rub the corn and peaches with olive oil. Grill the corn until it is lightly charred, about 5-7 minutes. Grill the peaches until they have grill marks, about 1-2 minutes per side. Let the corn cool slightly before slicing the kernels off the cob.

In a large bowl, combine the corn, peaches, arugula, quinoa, tomatoes, pecorino and chives. For the vinaigrette, whisk together the white balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl and drizzle over the salad.
