Grilled Peaches and Burrata with Mint and Sunflower Seed Pesto

Serves 6 – 8

Peaches and cream.  It’s no wonder the delicious dish inspired the moniker of a to-die-for complexion. The fact is, sweet peaches caramelize deliciously on the BBQ.  Paired with creamy Burrata cheese and fresh Mint and Sunflower Seed Pesto, Grilled Peaches and Burrata is a knock-out summer appetizer.

Ingredients:

1 Tbsp. olive oil

3 Organic yellow peaches

2 Balls Burrata cheese

Sea salt & cracked pepper to taste

Mint and Sunflower Seed Pesto

Directions:

Preheat the grill to medium-high.

Wash, pit and quarter the peaches.  Brush a generous amount of olive oil onto the peaches.  Grill for 3-4 minutes per side. Wrap Burrata in two separate pieces of foil and place on grill two minutes before peaches are done—just to get it nice and warm.

Remove from grill and prep two separate serving dishes to share, placing peaches around Burrata and garnishing with fresh pesto.

Just you and your honey for a romantic evening?  Quarter the recipe.

FOOD THAT LOVES YOU, TOO:  Peaches are high in beta-carotene, an antioxidant which converts to Vitamin A and supports healthy hearts and eyes.  The richer in color the peach, the richer it is in beta-carotene. Peaches are also high in fiber and have cleansing qualities.  If you’re needing to cleanse, grab a peach.
