  • Cooking Method: Grilling, Mixing
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Cuisine: Fusion, Italian-Inspired


  • 4 ripe peaches, halved and pitted
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic glaze

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high. If you don’t have a grill, a grill pan works just fine. (It’s all about that char!)
  2. Brush the peach halves with olive oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. If you heard a tiny peach cheer, you did it right.
  3. Grill the peaches, cut side down, for 4-5 minutes, until they have lovely grill marks and are slightly tender. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Set aside to cool, then slice into wedges.
  4. On a large platter, arrange the shredded rotisserie chicken, sliced mozzarella, and halved cherry tomatoes. Feel free to artistically scatter them or just plop them down. Either way, it’ll be fabulous.
  5. Add the grilled peach wedges to the platter. Nestle them in like they’ve always belonged there.
  6. Sprinkle the fresh basil leaves over the salad. (Tear them up a bit if you’re feeling rustic.)
  7. Drizzle the balsamic glaze artistically over the salad. Think of yourself as Jackson Pollock but with fewer splatters on your apron.
  8. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed. Serve immediately and impress everyone with your culinary prowess.


  • Alternative Ingredients: Try nectarines if peaches are not in season, or swap mozzarella with burrata for extra creaminess.
  • Garnishing Options: Add a sprinkle of toasted pine nuts for crunch or a handful of arugula for a peppery bite.
  • Cooking Tips: Ensure peaches are ripe but firm for easier grilling. Fresh, high-quality ingredients will shine in this simple dish.
