Grilled Peaches with Toasted Almonds
The perfect ending to a summer dinner party.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • 3 large, ripe, yellow peaches, halved and pitted
  • Extra virgin olive oil for brushing on peaches
  • Vanilla ice cream
  1. Heat a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add almonds and toast, watching carefully so they don't burn. If the pan has truly had time to heat up, it takes about 2 minutes on the first side and then 1 minute after flipping them. Set almonds aside.
  2. Brush both sides of each peach half lightly with extra virgin olive oil. Place peach halves in the pan, round side down and grill for about 3 minutes. Check one to see if grill marks have appeared. Turn them over and grill on the other side until grill marks appear, about 4 more minutes.
  3. If peaches are large, place one half on each plate. For medium sized peaches, you could plate with two halves. Sprinkle with almonds and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
