  • Grill, grill pan, or broiler


  • 12 ripe cherries
  • 12 mid-to-medium heat peppers, such as shishito
  • 2 oz goat cheese
  • 1 clove fresh garlic
  • 2 cups arugula lettuce
  • 2 slices whole grain bread
  • 2 wedges lime


  • An outdoor grill pan is the best way to char the peppers and cherries, but if you don't have access to one, use a grill pan on the stove top, or the broiler. Cherries will become soft and juicy; use foil on your grill or sheet pan for easy cleanup.
  • Place cherries and peppers on the grill and cook until peppers are blistered and charred and cherries have softened; about 5-7 minutes, depending on your heat source.
  • Grill bread pieces until they are browned and toasted.
  • Peel garlic and cut in half. Scrape the toast with the raw edge of the garlic.
  • Plate toast with warm peppers and cherries, top with fresh arugula, and sprinkle crumbled goat cheese on top. Squeeze lime wedge over everything.
