This grilled peach and tomato salad recipe is total summer salad brilliance. It’s juicy and delightful. Peaches are best in July and August and it really makes this salad extra special if you can make it with juicy summer peaches.
Tips for Making this Delightful Tomato & Peach Salad
Because the tomatoes in this salad are left raw, it’s best if they are vine-ripened, summer tomatoes. You can use any kind you’d like – I used Roma tomatoes in this recipe because I love their firmness. Roma tomatoes also have fewer seeds, so they’re great in salads.
I topped this salad with microgreens, but you could try lots of different toppings – a crumble of goat cheese, some toasted pine nuts or pepitas, or a drizzle of honey.
Make sure to really get all the peaches covered in a little olive oil – you don’t want them sticking to the grill.

You can make this recipe on an outdoor grill or on a grill pan on your stovetop. This is the grill pan I recommend. If you’d like a less expensive version, I think this one is quite good. For our outdoor grill, we have a Napoleon Rogue 425, we love it!
