  1. In a large serving or mixing bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar (portion for salad) and honey. Add olive oil while whisking. Season to taste with some salt and pepper. Pile salad greens on top but wait to toss until just before serving.

  2. Heat a grill pan or skillet over medium heat and brush with first portion of cooking oil. Toast sandwich rolls until golden and set aside.

  3. Return pan to medium heat. Brush cut sides of peaches with second portion of cooking oil and sear, cut side down, over medium heat until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes.

  4. Assemble sandwiches by spreading cut sides of sandwich rolls with balsamic mayonnaise and filling each roll with basil leaves, a peach half and a slice of cheese. If you like, you can return the assembled sandwiches briefly to the hot skillet to warm them through.

  5. Toss salad greens with dressing.

  6. Serve sandwiches with salad on the side and some extra balsamic vinegar for dipping if you like. Enjoy!
