Grilled Herbed Peaches

These peaches are great on the Mother's Day Salad or alone. They'd even be great with some vanilla ice cream and an extra drizzle of honey!

I'm a huge fan of grilled fruit, especially as a summer dessert. I love the way the natural sugar and flavors concentrate and develop with the heat. If you have never grilled fruit before, don't wait another minute. I'm sure you'll be an instant convert.

Grilled Herbed Peaches
my own little concoction!

Ingredients:

6 ripe peaches
3 TBSP honey
2 TBSP extra-virgin olive oil
2 TBSP finely chopped fresh tarragon

Directions:

1. Quarter peaches and place in a large bowl.

2. Add honey, oil, and tarragon. Mix by hand to make sure each slice is coated. Let sit 15--30 minutes.

3. Lay each slice, on one side, over the grill or grill pan. If using a grill pan, you may wish to spray with non-stick spray or brush with extra oil. Let sit, untouched, for five minutes.

4. Flip peaches to other side and let grill another five minutes.

5. Let cool five minutes, then serve.
