Balsamic Grilled Peaches

grilled peaches


Peaches are absolutely delicious and perfect for picnics, especially when they’re grilled. They go great as a side dish to a smokey meat or can be served as a dessert–with or without homemade vanilla ice cream!  The balsamic dressing is very light and offers a hint of mint. 

This is a perfect side-dish, snack or dessert if you’re at a picnic or barbecue! The sweetness of the fruit becomes much more prevalent when heated, and the tangy balsamic vinaigrette adds a second level of flavorings that make this dish so popular. Quick and easy, just mix the dressing while the peaches are on the grill. If you like, put a little vanilla ice cream on the side!grilled peaches

Peaches and pecans just seem to go well together, naturally, so sprinkle a few pecan slices over your grilled peaches and watch your guests devour!
