Sweet, simple, savory and smoky. That’s how we would describe this delightful grilled peach salad with savory granola. The different elements come together quite wonderfully to provide a well-balanced dish. As with most stone fruit recipes, we highly recommend experimenting on the grill with whatever stone fruit you have handy! Want to turn it into a main dish? Add some grilled chicken or shrimp!
