Grilled Peach and Fig Balsamic Vinegarette
This idea of taking a grilled peach and turning it into a dressing for salads has been in the back of my head for awhile. When I found out I was going to do cookout week. I felt I could develop the recipe for it. Why? Well because of two sponsors that sent me something for cookout week.
I love the French Farm. I worked with them last year for cookout week. I developed last year the:
Their products that they have really is amazing. So when I found so happy to learn that I was one the bloggers chosen to develop recipes with their products. I was instantly drawn to 2 things: a Fig Mustard and Saffron.
Anyway, back to this Grilled Peach and Fig Balsamic Vinegarette. One the reasons I choose the fig mustard from French Farm I knew it would be amazing in salads. It is different, and I like different.
I also made 2 versions of this Grilled Peach and Fig Balsamic Vinegarette. One with just white balsamic, the other with a fig balsamic from Taste of Old Country. I wanted an extra fig taste to it so why I used the fig balsamic. Both are versions are amazing. Depends on the amount of fig you like.

- 2 whole peaches (split in half, pit discarded)
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 4 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Pommery Fig Mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil (chopped)
- Brush the peach halves with a little olive oil and grill the peaches. 2-3 minutes on each side. Then remove from the grill and let them cool.
- Puree the peaches in a blender
- In a bowl, add the peach puree, along with the vinegar, mustard, lemon pepper, and basil.
- Slowly add the oil as you start whisking the ingredients together.
- Whisk everything together as it all emulsifies.
- Serve it up with salad and ENJOY!
If you want extra fig taste. Use 2 TB of the white balsamic and 2 TB of Fig balsamic.
