For me, peaches are a flavour of summer and something to be cherished for the few months they are available and tasting fabulous. In this grilled peach and tofu summer salad they play the lead and are joined by some savoury goodness in the shape of grilled tofu. The tofu also serves as a great protein source along with quinoa, which also happens to be a fantastic source of complex carbohydrates, making this a filling salad fit for a main meal if you wish. For greens I threw in some mixed baby greens and mangetout which adds some freshness and on top I like to drizzle balsamic glaze, lifting the sweetness of the peaches even more. As always I like to add lots of layers to my salad recipes and I hope you’ll enjoy these!
