Grilled Vegetable & Peach Salad}The Chew

About a year ago my 83 year old mother (sorry mom for revealing your age) started sending me recipes from a TV show called The Chew that she loved watching.  I had never heard of the show but  after I tried one of the recipes she sent me for  Salt and Pepper Butterscotch Pine Nut Cookies that I shared on the blog, I figured I better check out this show.  Glad I did.  It is such a fun show.  It is the perfect combination of a cooking show and a talk show.  It is daytime TV worth watching.

All the co-hosts on the show are great but I must admit that Clinton is my favorite.  I’ve been a Clinton fan for a long time and love that I get to see him on The Chew.

When I was invited to participate in a blogger campaign where we were asked to create a recipe inspired by one of the episodes of The Chew I couldn’t resist!  Since we just recently purchased a new grill I couldn’t wait to try out the recipe for  Grilled  Cantaloupe and Vegetable Salad  that was shared on their Summer Menu 2 show!

The Chew is your one-stop shop for everything food this summer.  They will feature everything from grilling to outdoor entertaining to picnics!  So many fun ideas and recipes.

One of our favorite things to cook on the grill is vegetables.  Love roasting them until slightly tender.  Today’s recipe takes those roasted vegetables and adds them into a salad for delicious flavor and texture.  I used a combination of asparagus, zucchini and corn.  Roasting corn on the grill is so easy and so delicious!  One thing I had never grilled before though was fruit!  On the show they grilled cantaloupe but I decided to uses peaches instead since I am not a big cantaloupe fan.  You just grill them long enough to warm them up a bit and put grill marks on and they are delicious!

I chopped all the fruit up small after roasting it and removed the corn from the ear and then mixed it into my salad along with some tomatoes and cucumbers.

I then tossed it with my good old, always in the refrigerator, balsamic vinaigrette. 

They share a yummy sounding dressing on the show that you might want to try too.  Just mix it all up together and you have a delicious salad full of lots of fun flavor and texture.

    My dad spent some time in a nursing home last year and the nurses always had his TV dialed to The Chew! I loved it from the start. There is a great chemistry among the stars on that show and the food is great! ♥

    Did you know that the blonde is Dr. Oz’s daughter who also battled being overweight as a child and young adult? And Carla is a contestant from Top Chef. I fell in love with her on that show, she is so delightful.
