When it comes to Summer's stone fruits, don't be afraid to think beyond sweet preparations. In this recipe, ripe peaches are thrown on the grill and served alongside salmon and red onions.
As the peaches cook, they become juicy and caramelized. The final dish is drizzled with a gingery vinaigrette.
For the perfect midweek pick-me-up, serve this sophisticated Summer meal with a chilled glass of white wine. Check out the recipe.
