Summer is in full swing… and man, it is hot out there! When the temperatures rise, the last thing I want is a heavy meal. Instead, I crave lighter foods that are satisfying and still full of flavor. Recipes like my Grilled Peach & Blue Cheese Salad make for the ultimate meal on a hot summer day.
Quick and super easy to prepare, you don’t need a bunch of ingredients or a lot of time to whip up a tasty meal. In fact, there is very little cooking required. You won’t even need to heat up your kitchen to serve up great taste. Fire up the grill and toss on the peaches and dinner is ready in under 10 minutes!
Sweet fruit paired with tangy Castello® Blue Cheese makes for the perfect flavor combination. Toss in some pecans for crunch and then drizzle with a tasty lemon vinaigrette and you have the ultimate summer meal. Find everything you need at your local Publix and add this recipe to your menu this week!

While you can use any of the delicious Castello® Blue Cheeses, I like the traditional blue cheese for my salad. That tasty cheese has a fine, nutty, blue mould aroma with hints of marzipan and a soft bitterness of sourdough, making it a favorite for cooking and snacking.
