Enjoy fresh, local fruits with this Grilled Peach Salad

 

It won’t be long before summer turns into fall and fall turns into winter – too soon to be thinking about winter? Summer is one of my favorite seasons and I love the fresh fruits and vegetables which come with it. What better way to enjoy every last bit of summer that you can then by enjoying FRESH, LOCAL fruit that will soon be out of season?

Many of the main ingredients for this Grilled Peach Salad were purchased at the Fulton Street Farmers Market! Have you been before, boy is it amazing! I highly suggest making time to go to this, or other farmers market’s in your area!

These goodies were all purchased at the Fulton Street Farmers Market! (Ignore the cucumber, I ended up not using it in this salad).
