Roasted Peach Feta & Pistachio Salad with a honey & Mustard Dressing - SCD, Grain-Free, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Clean EatingThis weekend we had escaped out of London to a beautiful country house about an hour’s drive away.  We were staying with another 4 couples (all friends of Dan’s from University) and a couple of kiddies and had planned to chill out and spend a bit of time together, catching up, playing board games, eating and drinking and generally not doing very much.

5 meals, 5 couples so it was suggested that everyone take charge of a meal and cook for everybody else.  Dan and I got lunch on the first day and decided to do a BBQ.  Settling on my Lime & Garlic Salmon Skewers and Dan’s Homemade Burgers, we decided to do two salads to accompany them so I started racking my brains.

I knew I wanted to do something with peaches as they are amazing at this time of year and I love paring sweet with salty so I decided to roast them (so they’d be extra sweet) and add feta for the tangy saltiness.

Meanwhile I sliced up the feta into cubes about 1cm big and I toasted the pistachios until they had just started to brown.

Then it was time to assemble the salad.  I used a base of bagged salad – watercress and rocket and laid the peaches, feta and pistachios on the top.  Roasted Peach Feta & Pistachio Salad with a honey & Mustard Dressing - SCD, Grain-Free, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Clean EatingI seasoned the salad well and then made a quick dressing by mixing together the wholegrain mustard and honey and drizzled it over the top and the salad was ready to take to the table.Roasted Peach Feta & Pistachio Salad with a honey & Mustard Dressing - SCD, Grain-Free, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Clean EatingFor me personally, it was the highlight of the whole meal.  The grilled peaches were amazingly sweet and I loved the contrast with the creamy salty feta and the spicy mustard.  I cooked what I thought would be plenty for 10 people, hoping for some leftovers but the entire thing disappeared!  Definitely a crowd pleaser and the most beautiful salad for a hot summer’s day!!  Roasted Peach Feta & Pistachio Salad with a honey & Mustard Dressing - SCD, Grain-Free, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Clean EatingRoasted Peach Feta & Pistachio Salad with a honey & Mustard Dressing - SCD, Grain-Free, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Clean EatingComing tomorrow…Salad #2 Grilled Halloumi, Caramelised Shallots, Green Beans & Pine Nut Salad with a Lime Dressing!
