This salad can be eaten in any season using available fruit but is probably best in summer when the selection of pit fruits is at its best. The warm sweetness of the fruit complements the melting lightly pungent creaminess of the cheese and bitter greens.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil grate.

  • Cut the peaches in half, removing the pit. Keeping the skin on the pear, cut straight down one side, then the opposite, leaving the core. Cut the two remaining sides off of the core (the pieces will not be even).

  • Brush a small amount of oil on the pineapple, peaches, and pear to prevent them from sticking to the grill. Sprinkle all sides of the fruit with pepper. Place the fruit flesh side down on the grill and cook for 10 minutes, turning as needed, until soft and caramelized.

  • When the fruit is cooked, remove from the grill and place on a serving platter. Sprinkle with crumbled cheese and top with chopped basil, parsley and arugula. Drizzle with olive oil if desired. Serve hot.

We made this lastnight... fruit was perfection. Added a little cilantro with parsley and basil. arugula awesome used goat cheese instead of Gorgonzola and drizzled balsamic with the olive oil and topped with avocado. I was nervous as I served it for dinner without trying it first. HUGE hit!! Loved it!! Always like to adlib recipes to my liking... Perfect spring/summer salad. Will definitely do it again and may add caramelized walnuts next time. Thank you Read More

Not bad kinda blah...I couldn't find arugala so I substituted Romaine. I also substituted balsamic vinegar for the olive oil. The fruit and Gorgonzola are awesome together! I would suggest cutting the greens by 1/4 and increasing the fruit basil and cheese a bit and definitely using balsamic vinegar! Read More
