Grilled Stone Fruit Salad

 In Recipes

A stone fruit is a fruit that has a pit inside! They have a shorter growing season, so when they are in season we like to take full advantage. Moving into fall, we wanted to make one last recipe using these delicious fruits. Dan came up with this Grilled Stone Fruit recipe and we knew we needed to share it! It is easy to make at home, looks beautiful and will impress your guests. ENJOY!

Grilled Stone Fruit Salad
Recipe courtesy of The Hearty Boys

4 peaches, firm but not rock hard
4 plums, same
Olive oil
Kosher salt
Cracked black pepper
½ cup local honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 ounces goat cheese
2 ounces Marcona alomonds
2 cups baby arugula
2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Halve the peaches and plums and remove the stones. Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and place flesh side down on a hot grill. Grill the fruit until each piece has deep strong grill marks. Turn and grill skin side down.

Remove from the grill and let cool. Slice into 4 – 6 pieces per half. Toss the peach and plum slices together.

Mix the honey with the vanilla and a healthy pinch of cracked pepper.
Toss the arugula with enough olive oil to coat, the lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mound the greens onto 4 plates and top with grilled stone fruit. Drizzle the whole with honey and crumbled goat cheese. Garnish with Marcona almonds.
