Barbecued Peach Salad Recipe with Vinaigrette Dressing

Barbecued peaches are usually served sweet as a dessert, but they work brilliantly in this lovely summery salad.  The BBQ brings out the richness and depth of flavour and the residual sweetness works beautifully with the salty halloumi.  Our girls love this dish.

Barbecued Peach Salad with Vinaigrette Dressing

Serves 4 as a side dish or starter, great in a BBQ buffet too


1 tbsp Maille Honey Dijon mustard
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Juice of ½ lemon
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 ripe peaches or nectarines, pitted and sliced
75g bag of watercress
2 tsp olive oil
250g pack of halloumi cheese, thinly sliced
100g walnut halves


1. To make the dressing, shake the mustard, vinegar, lemon juice and olive oil together in an old jam jar.  Season to taste.

2. Barbecue the peach or nectarine slices, or place in a griddle pan.  Cook for 2-3 minutes.

3. Griddle or barbecue the halloumi slices for a minute or two on each side, until golden.

4. Share the watercress between 4 serving plates or bowls, arrange the peach and halloumi slices on top.

5. Sprinkle with the walnuts, and drizzle with the vinaigrette dressing.
