With peaches in season, we just can’t get enough of the juicy fruit. They are perfect for snacks and always welcome for a picnic. They are great on their own, but grilling the peaches brings out even more flavour, plus the smell of the fruit on the grill is heavenly. While cutting the peaches in half works great, slices of peach are even better, so you get more of the char in each bite. The grilled peaches are delicious in this simple, perfect summer salad.

  • Cut the peaches in half and remove the pit before slicing.
  • Brush the peaches with olive oil and grill on the bbq at medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes per side.
