Recipe Details


In the height of summer, just when we think seasonal produce can’t get any more delicious, we remember juicy peaches are in their prime. Chef Michelle knows they’re an ideal pairing for super-savory grilled meats, so she’s throwing the fruit on the grill right alongside Italian herb-rubbed pork chops. With just a couple minutes over the flame, the tender peaches become at once intensely sweet and a little smoky—perfect contrast in a bright salad of Parmesan, snap peas, and arugula.

Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare Ingredients

    Prepare Ingredients

    Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Rinse all produce. Rinse peaches and slice off rounded sides, discarding pits.

  2. Make White Balsamic Vinaigrette

    Make White Balsamic Vinaigrette

    In a large bowl (big enough for the salad), whisk together white balsamic vinegar, half of mustard, 2 tablespoons olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and pepper as desired to combine, then set aside. Discard remaining mustard.

  3. Prepare Peas and Season Pork

    Prepare Peas and Season Pork

    Place a large piece of foil on a clean, dry surface and add snap peas. Drizzle over ½ tablespoon olive oil and season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper. Fold edges of foil up together and crimp to seal pouch. Pat pork dry with paper towel, then rub all over with ½ tablespoon olive oil, spice mix, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper. Set aside to marinate at room temperature. If using a grill pan, place over medium-high heat now.

  4. Grill Peaches, Peas, and Pork

    Grill Peaches, Peas, and Pork

    When grill is just smoking, add pouch of snap peas along with peaches, cut-side down. Grill peaches until charred and softened, about 2 minutes, then transfer to a plate, keeping peas on grill. Add pork to grill. Cook until pork is lightly charred, cooked through, and no longer pink, and peas are tender, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to plate with peaches, and cover pork loosely with foil to keep warm.

  5. Finish Peach Salad

    Finish Peach Salad
