GRILLED PEACH BRUSCHETTA is a delicious way to use those fresh summer peaches for a late summer snack.
I went to the farmer’s market with the family the other day and we walked past the stand selling peaches. Oh. My. GOSH!!!!! You could smell the amazing peaches as you walked past, but no one was walking past! They were all being pulled into the stall and waiting for their sample as they watched the peach being sliced and all the juice running out onto the cutting board. They were buying up peaches by the boxful and waiting in a LOOOOOONG line to checkout. It was worth it. These peaches were delicious. I grabbed a bunch and knew that some of them were going to end up on the grill. I love the tasted of grilled fruit. I’ve made Grilled Fruit Kabobs and Easy Sweet Dip in the past but I also love to eat stone fruit that’s been grilled. Grilling the fruit really just intensifies the flavor and I wanted to do something with it.
Grilled Peach Bruschetta was a way for me to snack on the peaches before dinner. I don’t really need an excuse but the more I thought of how to use them in a savory dish the more I wanted to mix them with basil. The taste of the sweet peaches against the basil and feta is so fantastic! It’s so fresh and amazing and like they were always meant to be together. 🙂 It really does taste like more than three ingredients but it’s just so simple and really a must try. I kept grabbing more and more as I was taking pictures. This is a must make as summer winds down.
