Grilled Asparagus, Peach & Blackberry Salad

Grilled Asparagus, Peach & Blackberry Salad

Summer is winding down and school is upon us – but the heat outside is still sizzling…just like this salad! A healthy fare of grilled asparagus combined with the sweet & savory flavors of grilled peaches and blackberries. Drizzled with a delightful Maple Vinaigrette and topped off with tart crystalized ginger, hearty Brazil nuts and ricotta salata….It’s so incredible that I wish I’d created this salad at the beginning of summer! Then I’d have been able to enjoy it all summer long…

Grilled Asparagus, Peach & Blackberry Salad
1 bunch asparagus, tough ends removed
1 large ripe peach, sliced
handful fresh ripe blackberries
5-6 cups mixed salad greens
