Charred Peach & Chicory Salad with Goats Cheese

Have you ever grilled peaches?  The sweetness of the peaches is elevated to next-level deliciousness when charred, just gorgeous when paired with the grilled chicory.  Chicory is so underrated because I think most find it too bitter, but let me tell you, when grilled, it magically transforms to caramelized sweetness.  

I used a mix of baby kale and lambs lettuce for salad leaves, then put the caramelized peaches and chicory on top and finished with dots of goat’s cheese for creaminess, pickled red onions for some tartness, and toasted pine nuts for crunch.

I always keep pickled red onions in the fridge too. They are so easy to make and elevate so many dishes.  The red onions are sliced super thin and marinated in apple cider vinegar, salt, sugar, and warm water, then put into a clean jar in the fridge. They last a couple of weeks and will jazz up almost everything. You eat, from avocado on toast to pizza!
