Whenever I invite people over for a summer dinner, I struggle with what to serve as an appetizer. Creamy dips go from great to meh in approximately 20 minutes in the warm summer heat. Meat, cheese, and crackers are the next obvious answer, as you really can’t go wrong with a meat and cheese plate, however, sometimes I want something a little more fun. Enter: grilled fruit.
Have you ever tried grilling fruit? I had my first grilled fruit experience a couple of summers ago when I grilled some peaches to go on top of pound cake. Oh my heavens, was that delicious! This time, however, it was time for something savory-sweet.
I always love the combination of prosciutto and fruit, so the thought of wrapping peach slices in prosciutto and then grilling them seemed like a great idea.
These Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Peaches with Blackberry Balsamic Glaze are my new go-to summer appetizer. Not only are they absolutely delicious, but they are incredible easy.
While these peaches are be a stunning appetizer on their own, I think the blackberry balsamic glaze really takes them up a few notches. You could definitely buy balsamic reduction glaze if you just don’t want to make your own, but the blackberry balsamic glaze can be made ahead of time, making the prep for these little guys a breeze. Just wrap them up, and store them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to grill! After they’re grilled, get your drizzle on and serve them up!
