My weekly trip to the Memphis Farmers Market has reached a new level -- the peach farmer (first booth on your right from the main entrance) recognizes my routine visit. I hate to waste an entire basket of ripe peaches, so he lets me take 2 for a dollar, or 4 for $2. It's a super sweet gesture for my favorite fruit of the season.
Grilled fruit is a go-to side dish or salad base for my summer meals, particularly because the natural caramelization is so irresistible! I add a few drops of Nature Nate's before throwing them on the heat; and 5 minutes later, they're ready to go.
For a richer application, my friend Justin Fox Burks of the Chubby Vegetarian throws his grilled peaches in a dutch baby with fresh, creamy burrata cheese. The heavenly fruit and cheese combination could serve as a light salad or more savory dessert option.
Enjoy the rest of your summery weekend!
Makes 2 servings

1. Spray nonstick spray on a grill (or grill pan) over medium heat. Brush peach slices with honey.
2. Place peaches, skin side up, on grill. Allow fruit to caramelize for 4-5 minutes until grill marks appear.
3. Immediately plate peaches. Top with torn pieces of mint, sprinkled sea salt, and a bit of extra honey if you're in need of some more sweetness.
