Lemony Peaches & Cream Romaine Salad

Add some zest to your salad game with this fresh, sweet and flavorful salad.

 Serving Size: 4  | Prep Time: 20 min | Cook Time: 14 min

What You Need:

  • 2 bags of Dole Romaine salad mix
  • 2 peaches, halved
  • 2 lemons juiced (1/2 cup)
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 fresh garlic clove, grated
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 lb mozzarella, cut into small cubes

How To Do It:

  1. Toast the almonds using the following method: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place a sheet of foil over the top of a baking sheet. Spread the almonds in a single layer on top of the foil. Bake 5 to 10 minutes until almonds have browned just slightly (shift the almonds around halfway through cook time to toast evenly.) Set almonds out to cool while you start making the rest of the salad.
  2. Begin by turning on the grill to medium high heat. After 10 minutes, brush grill vigorously with wire brush to make sure racks are clean.
  3. Chop or grate garlic into small pieces and mix with the heavy cream. Cover and refrigerate for 30 min. The dressing will be finished in the bowl as we make the salad.
  4. Cut peaches into halves and remove pit and brush with olive oil. Put peaches on hot grill until slightly caramelized, (about 3-4 minutes) the peaches will release from the grill when they ready. Remove and put to the side.
  5. To finish the salad, season the lettuce with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice, lightly brush with the cream. Lay on a tray, put peaches and cubed mozzarella over lettuce, sprinkle with toasted almonds, grate lemon zest over everything.
