Grilled Peach and Honey Dijon Chicken Salad with Goat Cheese and Pecans

Grilled Peach and Honey Dijon Chicken Salad with Goat Cheese and Pecans
My current obsession is my peach honey dijon balsamic vinaigrette and although it's amazing on simple salads I just could not help but think about using it in this grilled peach and honey dijon chicken salad with goat cheese and pecans! I took the dressing and used it as a marinade for some chicken which I then grilled and sliced for the salad! Fresh peaches would be great but I can not help but grill them for this salad and grilling them makes them so much better along with adding some smokey charred flavour! The salad is rounded out with red onion, pecans and creamy goat cheese along with peach honey dijon balsamic vinaigrette. I have to say that this grilled peach and honey dijon chicken salad with goat cheese and pecans is simply fabulous!

It's so good that I have made it several times in the last week adding things like raspberries, blueberries and even some grilled corn! What a perfect summer salad!
