Summer Peach Salad
What more can be said about the beauty of a grilled ripe peach? It feels almost sinful to caramelize its outside, is it not sweet enough already? The second fruit salad here at Fruitman Kitchen, this one is a stunner. Whether broiled in an oven, (like in our grill-less Fruitman Kitchen) or charred on a wood burning grill where it truly belongs, this salad is another siren’s call for the readers wistfully yearning for a perfect summer. We don’t know what this summer brings, but we do know that you should make this salad, and eat it immediately.
Total preparation time: 30 minutes
Pineapples: 5/5 🍍 🍍 🍍 🍍 🍍
Read before committing: A wood or gas barbecue grill will take this dish to the next level. The broiler will do just fine.
This salad scales beautifully, so we will give ratios. 1 part per person.
