Grilled Peaches

Sweet!

A sweet summer food dream! Grilled peaches with mascarpone and balsamic glaze. Oh my, delicious!

Nothing says summer like biting into a juicy ripe peach. This favorite summer fruit deserves a turn on the barbecue. The grill brings out the natural juiciness and intensifies the deep summer sweetness of the peaches. One of the easiest ways to impress a backyard full of BBQ friends. 

Serve the grilled peaches as a side dish, in a salad (toss mixed greens and place grilled peach halves all over) or as a delicious summer dessert. Healthy, gluten free, no refined sugar!

6 Ways To Serve Caprese

Buon Appetito!

In prospect that I’m going to spend my summer holidays in Italy, I’ve got inspired by Caprese salad, or Insalata Caprese. The famous Italian salad made of fresh sliced mozzarella, tomatoes and basil. Insalata Caprese is sometimes called insalata tricolore, referring to the three colors of the Italian flag: the red, white and green. Six fun variations of this classic summer salad:
