Chef Bradford Thompson of Mary Elaine's at The Phoenician in Scottsdale, Arizona, combines Spanish blue cheese, toasted walnuts and sweet, drippy peaches with frisée for a delicious salad.

  1. 1/2 cup walnuts
  2. 4 firm, ripe freestone peaches, halved and pitted
  3. 2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  6. 3 ounces arugula, large stems discarded
  7. One 5-ounce head frisée, torn into bite-size pieces (4 cups)
  8. 3 ounces Cabrales cheese, crumbled (1 cup)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Light a grill. Put the walnuts in a pie plate and toast in the oven for 7 minutes, or until they are golden brown. Transfer the walnuts to a plate and let cool, then coarsely chop.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss the peaches with 1/2 tablespoon of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the peaches over a medium-high fire until softened and lightly browned, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer the peaches to a work surface and cut each half in half.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the vinegar with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add the arugula and frisée and toss well. Transfer the salad to a platter and scatter the Cabrales and toasted walnuts on top. Arrange the peaches around the salad and serve.
