This Little Piggy's Grilled Peach and Feta Salad offers a simple collection of ingredients that marry together to create satisfying, complex flavors. There is truly something for everyone -- it's salty, tangy, peppery, and crunchy, but the peaches -- rounding out the flavors with a welcome addition of smoky sweetness -- steal the show. Generous portions of pistachios and feta make this salad a substantial stand-alone meal. The dressing ties it all together without competing for attention.
Inspired by a peach and goat cheese salad I had at the Peekamoose restaurant in the Catskills. This summer salad is enhanced by grilling the peaches. The sweetness of them contrasts with the pepperiness of the arugula and the saltiness of the cheese.
If you prefer a creamier cheese you can use chevre instead of the feta.
