Ingredients

for the sauce

  • 1/2 c. plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Fresh lemon zest for garnish if desired

for the grilled peaches

  • 2 fresh peaches washed, cut in half and pit removed
  • 1 Tbsp. orange olive oil or oil of choice
  • 1/2-1 tsp. cinnamon
  • Balsamic vinegar for garnish if desired

Instructions

  • To make the yogurt sauce, combine Greek yogurt, lemon juice, honey, and vanilla. Stir well and keep refrigerated. Reserve lemon zest for garnish when serving.
  • To grill the peaches, make sure grill grates are clean. Pre-heat grill and oil the grates while preparing peaches.
  • Cut both peaches in half and remove the pit. Place cut side up on a plate and brush each half lightly with oil, being sure to cover both the cut side and the outside of the peach. Sprinkle cut sides with cinnamon.
  • Place peach halves, cut side down, on grill grates. Close lid and grill on low heat for about 4 minutes. Open lid and carefully lift peaches from the grates and flip so the outside of the peach is on the grates. Close lid and grill for another 3 to 4 minutes or until peaches are softened but not mushy.
  • Remove from grill and cook slightly.
  • To serve, drizzle a little balsamic vinegar on the bottom of 4 dessert plates. Place one peach half on each plate. Top each with a dollop of the honey and lemon yogurt sauce and sprinkle lemon on top. Serve immediately.
