  • 4 firm, ripe medium peaches, unpeeled, halved and pitted

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon coarsely ground pepper

  • 1 teaspoon orange, lemon or lime zest, optional

  • 1 tablespoons orange, lemon or lime juice, optional

  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh mint or basil leaves, optional

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin or smoked paprika, optional


  1. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to high (450-500°F). Lightly brush cut sides of peaches with 1/2 tablespoon oil; place cut-side down on the preheated grill grates. Grill until grill marks appear on the cut sides, about 4 minutes; flip and grill until the peaches are beginning to soften but still hold their shape, 2 to 3 minutes more.

  2. Transfer the peaches to a platter. Drizzle the warm peaches with the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil. Sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper. If desired, drizzle with citrus juice and sprinkle with citrus zest, mint (or basil) and cumin (or smoked paprika).

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
