Grilled Balsamic-Glazed Peaches

An easy balsamic glaze perfectly complements the smoky sweetness of grilled peaches.  Serve this simple 5-ingredient side with grilled chicken, beef, or fish.


Makes 6 servings

Recipe from

Southern Living


1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cracked pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 firm, ripe peaches, halved
1/4 cup vegetable oil


Combine first 4 ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 2 to 3 minutes.

Place peaches in a shallow dish. Pour vinegar mixture over peaches, tossing gently to coat. Let stand 10 minutes.

Remove peaches from vinegar mixture, reserving 2 tablespoons mixture. Set aside remaining vinegar mixture.

Whisk together reserved 2 tablespoons vinegar mixture and oil, blending well. Set vinaigrette aside.

Place peach halves, cut sides down, on a lightly greased grill rack. Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium heat (300° to 350°) 5 minutes on each side or until firm and golden, basting with remaining vinegar mixture. Serve peaches with vinaigrette.
