This hearty salad was created when I needed to clear out some leftovers from the fridge—and it became an instant hit! The grilled peaches are the ultimate "tastes like summer" salad booster. —Lauren Wyler, Dripping Springs, Texas

"Amazing summer salad! I don't have a grill so I broiled the peaches but it was still fantastic."

"Absolutely delicious! I didn't have the shallots on hand but made the rest of the recipe "as is" and it was fabulous! I think I've made this 4 or 5 times now because it's so simple and yet so tasty. I've even made it with raw, chopped peaches and peach slices fried on a griddle (so I didn't have to grill) and I like it all. Definitely a keeper!"
