I am a Georgia peaches. I love my peaches. When I was a child, my great great aunt had a peach tree in her backyard, amongst many other fruit trees. She also had an apple and cherry tree. She would make jams, preserves, cobblers and the best crusty peach pie ever, all from scratch.
Yesterday my husband and I was getting ready for my son’s birthday party. He turned 15.
Wow where did the time go. As we were driving along, I saw a local farmer, that I see regularly on the side of the road, selling all of nature goodness. I decided this time to stop by and I picked up the prettiest and most fragrant Georgia peaches. I had to use them up before we went on vacation, so I came up with this amazing smoky, sweet, tart and crunchy salad.
I used Go Raw Sprouted Simple Seeds to give it crunch, the dressing is sweet, tart and smoky. The grilling of the peaches also brings out their nature sweetness. I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as I did today.
Remember to first, Set the Table with Love.
1 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
3 large peaches ( pitted it and cut in half) 1 for the dressing and 2 more peaches for the salad

1. On a George Forman grill, drizzle the 1 tbsp of olive oil on the top and the bottom. Add the peach halves. Pull the lid down and grill for about 2-3 minutes, until you get nice grill marks on the peaches. Remove from the grill and add to a blender, Vitamix or Ninja. Add all the remaining ingredients to the blender. Blend and puree until smooth. Set aside.
