How to grill peaches – 2 ways!

Grilling peaches takes so little time. I have a Baby Weber that’s super quick and easy for me to use. Just fire it up, wait a few minutes and grill the peaches. Or if you’re already grilling chicken, just throw them on at the end of the grilling session for a few minutes on medium heat.

Here’s my Baby Weber! I bought it just for me. My husband has a Traeger and a Big Green Egg, but this little grill is perfect for me as I can do it all myself – it’s quick and easy!

There are two ways to grill peaches.

Grill them sliced

It’s best to use freestone peaches for this recipe. You can slice them -make sure the slices are big enough and won’t slip through the grill grate. (I like to leave the skins on.)

Peach slices on the grill with grill marks

Baste the peaches with a little olive oil and grill for a 1-2 minutes on medium heat, then flip and grill on the other side for a few minutes. This is my preferred method as I like the “grill marks,” on each piece.

Grill them in halves

You can also slice them in half, which is much easier than grilling them in slices. Cut each peach in half, remove the pit, brush with a little olive oil and grill for about 4-5 minutes on each side. When finished, cut them into bite sized pieces for the salad. For more in depth instruction on grilling peaches – check out this article.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 fresh peaches, halved and pit removed
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1/4 red onion, finely chopped (optional)
  • 8 c. spring mix
  • 2 c. arugula
  • 8 oz cooked/grilled chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 8 fresh basil leaves, rolled and finely chopped
  • 4 oz. goat cheese, crumbled
  • 4 T. dried cherries
  • 4 T. sliced almonds
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 4 T. balsamic vinegar – use a good thick quality one! (I like to use an 18 year aged balsamic)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the grill to medium heat.
  2. Cut the peaches into slices that will fit on the grill without falling through, or if grilling in halves, just cut in half, remove pit.
  3. Brush peaches with oil (both sides). Grill for 2-3 minutes on each side if using pieces, 4-5 minutes if using halves. Remove to a plate.
  4. To make 4 individual salads, on each plate place: 2 c. spring mix, 1/2 c. arugula, few tablespoons of red onions, 2 oz cooked chicken, 1/4 of the peaches, 2 finely chopped basil leaves, 1 T. dried cherries, 1 T. sliced almonds, 1 oz. goat cheese, sprinkle of salt and pepper and about 1 T. balsamic vinegar. Eat immediately or if serving later, reserve the balsamic vinegar and drizzle on before serving.
