4 servings

1½ cup basil leaves, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

⅓ cup + 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

6 ounces green beans

3 peaches, pitted and halved

6 ounces halloumi, sliced

4 cups mixed greens

½ cup pine nuts, toasted

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the basil, garlic, lemon juice and rice vinegar. Gradually whisk in ⅓ cup olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

2. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans and blanch for 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water to cool completely.

3. Preheat a grill or grill pan over high heat. Brush the remaining olive oil evenly over the peaches and halloumi. Working in batches, grill the peaches and halloumi until well charred, about 3 minutes per side.

4. Arrange the mixed greens on a large platter. Top with the green beans, peaches and halloumi. Drizzle with the dressing and garnish with the pine nuts.
