Grilled Halloumi and Peach Salad

In this recipe, peaches and Halloumi cheese are grilled and tossed with a flavorful greens and pesto dressing.

"Peaches are my favorite summer fruit. Though I like them best out of hand, they taste glorious in pies and cobblers and as a change from strawberries with shortcake. They make great sauces for BBQ and can be used for salsa, but this year I decided to use them hot off the grill. They are superb in salads and the grill gives them such robust flavor. "

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
