An Exciting and Flavourful Salad, the Perfect Side for Grilled Burgers or Chicken

Serves 4, as a side dish


  • 2 Cloves of Garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Canola or Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 Head of Lettuce
  • 1 Bell Pepper, core removed
  • 1 Peach, cut into quarters with pit removed
  • 1 Carrot, thinly sliced or grated
  • 1 Tomato, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • ¼ Cup Sunflower or Pumpkin Seeds


  1. Heat your bbq to 500 degrees OR heat a frying pan on medium-high.
  2. Add the red wine vinegar, garlic, oil, mayonnaise, and mustard, as well as some salt and pepper to a small bowl or a mason jar, then whisk or shake to combine. Taste, and add more salt and pepper if desired.
  3. Cut off and discard the root end of the head of lettuce, then chop the leaves into bite-sized pieces. Put the lettuce in a salad spinner or colander and wash to remove any grit, then set aside to dry.
  4. Lightly drizzle the bell pepper and peach with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Put the pepper and the peach pieces on the grill or in the frying pan. Sear for 1-2 minutes, then turn and do the same to the other side. Remove to a cutting board and let them cool.

Add the lettuce, carrot, tomato and pumpkin or sunflower seeds to a large bowl. Once the pepper and peach are cool enough to work with, cut them into bite-sized pieces and add to the salad bowl. Top with the dressing and toss thoroughly to combine. Enjoy!
