Grilled Balsamic-Glazed Peaches

Yield Makes 6 servings
An easy balsamic glaze perfectly complements the smoky sweetness of grilled peaches.  Serve this simple 5-ingredient side with grilled chicken, beef, or fish.

Ingredients

  • 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

How to Make It

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

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

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

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

  5. 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.
