Grilled Peach Salad with Buffalo Mozzarella and Arugula

Please go make this amazingly delicious salad now!  I love, love, love this salad and it is so perfect for this time of year.

Grilled Peach Salad with Buffalo Mozzarella and Arugula

6 peaches, cut in half and pitted
3-4 large handfuls baby arugula, washed and dried
1 small red onion, slivered
5 ounces buffalo mozzarella or other fresh mozzarella, torn into bite-size pieces
4 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons whole grain mustard
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon heavy cream

Heat grill or grill pan to medium hot.  Lightly salt the cut sides of the peaches and drizzle lightly with olive oil.  Place cut side down on the grill.  When the peaches are charred and just beginning to soften, remove from grill and set aside. 
To make the dressing, place vinegar, honey and mustard in a small bowl.  While whisking constantly, slowly drizzle in olive oil until emulsified.  Whisk in cream.  Toss arugula and onion with vinaigrette and place on serving platter.  Set peaches and mozzarella amongst greens and drizzle with a little more dressing.  Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and serve.
