This salad is summer cuisine at its best with my favorite summer produce: sugar snaps, peaches and corn!

  • 2 ripe peaches, halved and pitted
  • 2 salmon fillets with skin
  • about 2 cups fresh corn kernels (from 2 ears)
  • 4 cups arugula
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 cup feta, crumbled
  • salt and pepper

for the vinaigrette:

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

What to do:

  • To make the dressing combine all ingredients well
  • Pat salmon dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper on both sides
  • Preheat your grill to high
  • Lightly spray peach slices with an oil mister or cooking spray and grill peaches until grill marks are present on both sides, 3 to 5 minutes
  • Remove peaches, allow to cool and cut into both-size pieces
  • Meanwhile, place salmon fillets on grill, skinless side down
  • Close the grill lid and cook 1-3 minutes on the first side, depending on how thick the fillets are
  • Remove salmon when fillets are opaque
  • Combine corn, arugula and sugar snaps and divide among two plates
  • Place a piece of salmon on each salad and drizzle with cilantro vinaigrette
  • Sprinkle with feta and grilled peaches
  • Add salt and pepper to taste
