Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Peaches with Cheese

Summer is the time to cook food on the grill. Meat, vegetables, and fruits all have their flavors enhanced with the high heat that seals in all the juices.  Magic seems to happen when we grill fuit. Today’s recipe uses ripe but not soft peaches wrapped in prosciutto. Grilled prosciutto wrapped peaches are a perfect sweet and savory dish.  Serve with mozzarella or burrata. Drizzle the platter with extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle a little salt and pepper, and garnish with fresh basil strips.

  1. I have to google for prosciutto. The grilled prosciutto wrapped peaches look beautiful and delicious served with the cheese. Nice presentation.

  2. This would be ridiculously delicious! I make peach caprese nut adding the prosciutto takes it up a whole ‘nother level! Try it with a bit of balsamic glaze too – yum!

    1. There is no reason you couldn’t leave out the cheese. Perhaps drizzle basalmic glaze on it?

  3. Oh, we grill no more… we cooking in the kitchen, because it’s easier. And of course: salad, salad and salad in the summertime – we love it with Quiche or Pasta.

    Happy MosaicMonday

  4. These sound really yummy. I’ve had prosciutto with melon but have never thought about combining it with another fruit.
