Peaches are out there now and I am so loving the sweet taste these summer days. Peaches are definitely one of my favourite fruits and I cannot get enough when they are in season. I prefer peaches pure or in a fruit salad or dessert.
Combining the sweetness of peaches with a savoury dish was something that reminded me of 70s cookbooks, when using fruits in a meat dish was considered to be “exotic”. We all know Toast Hawaii. But then I was taught better.
Lately I came across a few good recipes for combining peaches with – for me – new things. Such as using peach on a crostini with cheese, on a burger or in a vegetable salad.
I found a good match for the sweet peaches with basil and almonds. The dressing for this salad is also a nice combination of sweet and savoury by using olive oil and black pepper with maple syrup. Putting peaches in the oven or on a barbecue gives the fruits a divine aroma that you will not forget. I just loved the taste of these grilled peaches.
Finally I would like to share this beautiful “ode to the peach” by Coco from Roost with you.
