This is the ultimate appetizer or light meal for you and the family. It is a perfect combination of sweet and savory. Peaches are in full effect right now, meaning they are beyond delicious and in season. I recommend giving this little combo a try before summer is over.Jump to Recipe
HOW TO GRILL PEACHES
You want your peaches soft but not too ripe otherwise they will stick to the grill.
Slice them in half and pull out the pit. Season with salt and pepper and brush them with oil. Turn your grill on low to medium heat. Place the peach down on the grill. The key to this is patience, you don’t want to burn the stone fruit but you want some nice grill marks on it.
If you mess up the grill marks I suggest slicing them up so no one notices the grill marks!
I like to use whatever peach is in season. They all taste equally delicious for this recipe.
You can skip the "salad" part of this recipe!
You can easily skip the kale part of this recipe and just have the grilled peaches with the homemade candied pecans and feta on top. It makes a delicious elevated appetizer!
