Grilled Peach and Strawberry Salad with Mint Pesto Dressing | Vista’s Natural Farm Stand

Couple Berry Farm’s Grilled Peach and Strawberry Salad with Mint Pesto Dressing

pesto salad recipe from couple berry farms natural farm stand in vista, ca

Basil and mint from couple berry farms natural farm standin vista, ca
Salad Ingredients:

3 Small Peaches, sliced
1 cup Strawberries, sliced*
2 tsp. Olive Oil
2 tsp. Balsamic Vinegar
1 large package of Couple Berry Farms salad mix (We used our “Elegant Green” Arugula mix)*
Sliced mozzarella, or rolled into a ball and sliced in half
A few dollops of Pesto (see ingredients below)
Pine nuts or Walnuts to top (toasted or raw)
Salt and Pepper
Pesto Ingredients:
1 packed cup of mint* and basil*
¼ cup pine nut or walnuts (we used walnuts)
½ garlic clove
¼ cup olive oil (more if you prefer the pesto to be thinner)
Salt and pepper to taste

*Available fresh from Couple Berry Farms!

Step One:

Add all pesto ingredients to food processor and pulse until desired texture is achieved.  At this time, you can add more olive oil and/or balsamic vinegar if you want it to be thinner like a dressing.

Step Two:

Slice peaches and toss with olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl.  If the peaches are  large, you can place directly on grill over medium heat for a few minutes. OR, if peaches are  smaller, take one foot of aluminum foil and fold in the corners to make a small basket/tray.   Place peaches in the foil and place on hot grill. Grill on high for about 3 minutes, until the liquid is slightly bubbly.  The foil prevents burning.  (Strawberries also taste delicious when grilled and can be added with the peaches!)

How to make strawberry salsa recipe by couple berry farms farmstand in vista CA

Strawberry Salsa

1.5 lbs Strawberries
3 Spring Onions
3 Tbs Lime Juice
1 Large Jalapeño (We had home-canned jalapeños on hand)

We used our salsa maker, but you can have similar results by chopping the ingredients finely, and combining in a large bowl.

Tasty with chips or as a garnish for lamb, chicken, or egg omelet.
