Griddled Peaches & Mint Feta Cheese Salad

Fruit and cheese don’t have to be left until after the meal – serve them as part of your main course in this dee-lish salad. You can try using low-fat firm cheese as a change from feta. Alternatively omit the feta and serve with cottage cheese and rye crackers.
