If you think grilling ends after the main meal, think again. Grilled fruit, especially stone fruits – like peaches, apricots, and nectarines – makes for a decadent post-cookout dessert that can be served on its own or dressed up with gelato or fresh cheese. And it couldn't be easier!

To prepare, simply halve and pit each stone fruit (don’t peel!), season with a light sprinkling of sea salt to accent the flavor. Heat your grill to medium-low and place each peach half on the grill. Cover and cook the peaches until they have lightly charred and softened, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Serve warm with a scoop of lemon sorbetto, fior di latte gelato, or fresh mozzarella. Drizzle with high-quality balsamic vinegar for added decadence just before serving.

For a creative twist on the classic caprese, try a salad with grilled peaches, arugula, and mozzarella – the perfect way to celebrate summer's bounty.
