I discovered that grilled peaches and shrimp go beautifully together. This salad dotted with goat cheese and pecans and drizzled with a honey balsamic vinaigrette is a winner. 

The grill has been my friend this summer. I've enjoyed grilling fruits especially peaches because it brings out a sweet, caramelized flavor to whatever you add it to. Shrimp is always succulent off the grill. Put the two together and you have an amazing combination of flavors.

My husband was hesitant to eat shrimp and peaches together. Being a meat and potatoes boy he was pleasantly surprised. "This taste great" where his exact words.

This salad is the perfect healthy choice. It's low in calories, high in protein and packed with flavor. Mix up your own honey balsamic vinaigrette and there is no guilt eating this summer salad.
