Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Combine the rice wine vinegar and Dijon in a small bowl. Slowly pour the olive oil into the bowl, while constantly whisking to emulsify the vinaigrette. Season with tarragon and salt.

Place the peaches in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and toss well. Place the peaches on the grill and cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side.

Place the salad mix in a large bowl. Add chopped pecans, goat cheese and grilled peaches. Drizzle the salad with dressing and toss to coat. (Optional: Finish the salad with a drizzle of balsamic or pomegranate molasses).
