Grilled Chicken & Peach Salad

Grilled Chicken & Peach Salad with Honey Peach Vinaigrette

This Grilled Chicken & Peach Salad is everything I love about summer. Crisp greens get tossed with grilled chicken, juicy peaches, sweet blueberries, thinly sliced red onions, and ripe tomatoes. Because I can’t get enough of peaches this summer, I made a honey peach vinaigrette to drizzle over the top.
