Peach season is here! I’ve been anticipating it all year long and the collection of fabulous peach infused recipes I’ve amassed over the last few months is proof. I plan on eating these bad boys until I’m blue in the face. Up first: Olive You Whole‘s grilled peaches with a sweet balsamic reduction. So good. So healthy.

From  Lauren Carnes Photography… The “dog days” of summer are upon us, but that doesn’t mean you have to let the heat get you down! Now is the perfect time to head to the lake with friends for a weekend getaway, and while you’re at it, stop at a roadside stand for some fresh, local peaches to make this delicious, seasonal & simple dish: Grilled Peaches with Balsamic Reduction.

With so many restricted diets these days, it can be hard to find a dish that is fit for everyone. While you’re spending time with friends, fire up the grill for these amazing Grilled Peaches with Balsamic Reduction that are Paleo, Whole30 and Vegan-Friendly. Plus, it’s guaranteed to please even the pickiest of palates! With the combination of savory and sweet flavors, it’s the perfect finish to a day in the sun. Plus, there simply is no better time than summer to enjoy a fresh, local peach!

We were on a mission to create a dish that was sweet and delicious for those who might have restricted diets, but one that even the most discerning chocolate cake lover would enjoy! With so many people aiming to rest and “reset” their bodies during the summer months, Whole30 has become very popular. But a restricted diet shouldn’t mean that you have to avoid “sweets.” Here’s the perfect recipe for fruit lovers and cake/cookie/ice cream lovers alike!

Serves 6Ingredients
  • 6 large peaches
  • 3/4 c balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil (for grill)
  • Fresh basil (optional)
Instructions
  1. Wash peaches and cut in half along the natural groove of the peach. Twist both sides to evenly remove one side. Remove the pit.
  2. Fire up the grill and get the grates nice and hot. Rub a small amount of olive oil on the grates to prevent sticking.
  3. Place peaches on grill, open side down, for 15-20 minutes.
  4. While the peaches are grilling, bring balsamic vinegar to a low boil on medium high heat. Then bring to a simmer for 20 minutes, or until it reaches the consistency you desire.
  5. Remove peaches from grill. Swirl the balsamic reduction on top and add fresh basil to taste. Enjoy!

These peaches are a perfect addition to any meal and will surely wow the crowd!
