Grilling The Peaches:
Mix 2 tbsp of butter and 2 tsp of honey into a small bowl, melt for about 30 seconds in the microwave. Once this mixture is melted, dip your peaches in for a glazed coating before placing them on the grill. Use an indoor grill, for example a grill similar to a George Foreman to lightly grill your peaches, make sure to use cooking spray so that peaches do not stick. Preheat your grill and place peaches on the grill for approximately 1-2 minute(s) on each side, remove from grill and place on a plate to cool.
Note: If you do not have an indoor grill, you can lightly pan sear your peaches on the stovetop by placing the glazed peaches into a skillet for about 4-5minutes or until peaches are a light golden brown color.
Combined lettuce and cucumbers with cooled grilled peaches into a large salad bowl.
Pour dressing mixture over salad and top with crumbled ricotta salata cheese; add sunflower seeds for a crunch.
