Grilled Peach + Sweet Onion Salad with Yogurt + Mint

Grilled Peach + Sweet Onion Salad with Yogurt + Mint | Kitchen 1204

This salad was one of those “oh my gosh, I have people coming over right now and need an appetizer” sort of creations. I needed something quick using ingredients I had on hand. Peaches and sweet onions are jewels of mid-summer produce, and they’ve been staples in my kitchen all summer long. Grilling them brings out even more sweetness, while also adding a savory char. Plain yogurt adds a big of tang, mint adds an herbaceous note, and a sprinkle of flaky salt rounds it all out. Simple as that!

You can grill the peaches and onions ahead of time and serve them chilled, or grill them just before guests arrive and serve them warm. For those of you who don’t have a grill at your disposal, a grill pan is an inexpensive way to get those beautiful grill marks without stepping outside into the summer heat.

Grilled Peach + Sweet Onion Salad with Yogurt + Mint

Yield: 2 appetizer portions

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe but firm peach
  • 1 small sweet onion (such as Vidalia)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 10-12 mint leaves
  • flaky salt (such as fleur de sel or Maldon)

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat grill to moderate heat.
  • 2. Rinse peach, rubbing to remove fuzz. Halve peach, remove pit, and cut each half into 4-5 equal slices. Peel onion, then cut into 1/4" rounds. Lightly coat peach and onion slices with oil and grill 4-6 minutes per side or until distinct grill marks appear. Set aside. *You can make do this step ahead of time and refrigerate the grilled peaches and onions in an airtight container.
  • 3. Smear a dollop of greek yogurt (about 2 Tbsp) across each plate. Lay 4-5 grilled peach slices on the yogurt. Gently pull apart onion rings and divide evenly among plates. Sprinkle each plate with flaky salt and top with 5-6 mint leaves, tearing larger leaves into smaller pieces. Serve immediately.
  • Notes

    Plain greek yogurt can be substituted with regular plain yogurt, sour cream, creme fraiche, softened mascarpone cheese, or softened goat cheese.

    Basil is a great substitution for mint.
