grilled sweet and savory peaches

I am a sucker for ANYTHING that is sweet and salty so when I saw this recipe I couldn't resist trying it out and putting my own twist on the sweet and savory treat. It is simple, colorful, easy and a SUPER delicious summer treat!




thin slices of pancetta
or if you cannot find sliced pancetta easily (like me), prosciutto will work just fine
Peaches or nectarines- cut into wedges
Salt and pepper
Basil leaves
Olive oil
Balsamic Vinegar

Start by cutting the peaches into wedges.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Wrap each wedge with a basil leaf and a strip of prosciutto.

Once your peaches are all wrapped up, it is time to cook.

The recipe calls for cooking them in a skillet. I decided to use a grill.
Either way will work just fine :)

Grill (or cook all peaches) about 2- 4 minutes on each side OR until the prosciutto is crispy.

Transfer to a plate

and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
Serve as an appetizer or add to a salad!

I decided to add the peaches to an arugula salad that I topped with blue cheese crumbles and toasted walnuts.

Devour immediately! The peaches are best served a little warm!
