Amazing Grilled Peach and Corn Quinoa Salad

Ever since I got my new grill, I’ve been on an outdoor-cooking spree! Corn and zucchini are a few of my favorites to grill, and this time I added a new ingredient to the mix- peaches! Beautifully ripe peaches are plentiful at the local farm stands and I couldn’t resist buying some. They’re naturally delicious, but grilling them adds some new-level flavor! The tangy flavor of the Sweet Basil Vinegarette is the perfect finishing touch!

This dish is hearty enough to serve as the main course. It would also be great as a side dish at a BBQ. It comes together with minimal prepping and cook time.

Amazing Grilled Peach and Corn Quinoa Salad

Ingredients:

1 Cup Quinoa

2 Zucchini

2 Ears of corn

2 Ripe peaches 

2 small tomatoes (or use several cherry tomatoes) 

1/4 cup Pepitas

For the Sweet Basil Vinegarette

3 tablespoon Olive oil

1/4 cup Packed fresh basil leaves

3 tbsp Agave

1 tbsp Freshly squeezed lemon juice 

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

(optional- top with vegan Feta cheese)

Combine the dry quinoa with water in a saucepan and cook on high until it starts boiling. Reduce heat to low and cook until the water evaporates. Remove the quinoa from the heat and fluff with a fork. Set aside.

While the quinoa is cooking you can start grilling the corn, zucchini, and peaches. Turn the grill to medium-high and let it heat up. The corn takes the longest to cook, so it goes on the grill first. Spray it with cooking oil and set it down on the grill. Cook for 10 minutes and then flip and cook for an additional 10 minutes.

The zucchini and peaches are sprayed with oil and cooked face-down for 5 minutes.

Once you’re finished grilling the veggies and fruit, slice zucchini and peaches into sections. Hold the corn horizontally and cut in a downward motion to remove the corn kernels.

Toss the veggies, peaches, and cooked quinoa together along with the cut tomatoes and pepitas.

Combine the ingredients for the Sweet Basil Vinaigrette in a food processor or high-powered blender. Season with salt and pepper.

Toss the vinaigrette with the quinoa mixture and serve on a bed of arugula.

Enjoy!
