Fire up your grill!

I use my grill almost every single day during this time of the year. In fact, I think almost everything tastes better grilled in the summer. I grill everything from salads to desserts. In the past week, I grilled pizzas, watermelon, romaine lettuce for Caesar salads, bread and skillet berry cobbler. Today, I am giving you another excuse to turn on your grill, enjoy the outdoors and eat a delectable little snack, appetizer or lunch. Grilled Peach Crostini with Arugula, Prosciutto and Goat Cheese combines a few simple ingredients to create something easy and impressive. It is a great option for dinner parties and entertaining.

I love fresh seasonal peaches. During the summer I love to grill them. Grilled peaches are perfect for dessert, tossed with a salad or even layered over a slice of grilled bread with a few extra ingredients. Because I always have arugula in my fridge, I layer it over the goat cheese before topping with prosciutto and grilled peaches. The flavors work really well together with the sweet peaches complementing the salty prosciutto and flavorful goat cheese. Don’t forget the balsamic reduction that adds even more flavor.

You can even use the same exact ingredients and make yourself grilled pizzas on naan bread for something a little more filling.

    I use the grill EVERY day as well, especially now that my husband taught me how to, without burning the house down. Grilled peaches are my fav, and with that arugula and goat cheese? Simply perfect! Pinned!

  2. Sarah @Whole and Heavenly Oven

    I’m pretty much addicted to my grill right now as well. I’ve grilled ALL the things and that’s the way it should be in the summertime. 😉 This gorgeous crostini? It’s just gotta happen asap! Lovin’ the combo of grilled peaches with the arugula, prosciutto and goat cheese!

  3. Sues

    This has to be one of the all-time best flavor combinations. And these crostini are seriously gorgeous!!!

  4. Danae @ Recipe Runner

    This looks so good Ashley! I was just thinking about making something with peaches and prosciutto over the weekend! What a perfect summer bite!

  5. Medha @ Whisk & Shout

    That arugula looks awesome! So fresh and delicious. And totally loving the grilled peach with it and the goat cheese 🙂

  6. Cyndi - My Kitchen Craze

    Oh man these look and sound so good. I love that you grilled the peaches! Great idea. I have friends coming over this next weekend and I need to have these on our appetizer list! 🙂

  7. Ryan MacDonnell

    We must be on the same radar! The new favorite over here is grilled peaches with goat cheese and a drizzle of our Meyer Lemon Syrup. Grilled peaches are just the best.

  8. Jessica @ Sweet Menu

    Oh I LOVE grilled peaches! These little appetizers not only look absolutely delicious but they are just a little bit fancy, don’t you think? Love it!

    We use our grill a lot during the summer, too! In fact, we use it pretty much year round. We love grilled peaches but typically only have them drizzled with honey. I will have to give your crostini recipe a try. It looks delicious and pretty too, Ashley!

  11. Lisa @ Healthy Nibbles & Bits

    This is just the perfect bite for summer! I just LOVE pairing savory flavors with fruit right now. Definitely need to try this soon!

  12. Kelly

    These look gorgeous, Ashley! Love grilled peaches, these are the perfect bites for summer!

  13. Katalina @ Peas and Peonies

    I agree, this is the perfect summer little snack, I love its lightness and contrast of flavors, also I think its a great idea that you added peppery arugula to balance the sweetness from the peaches and the creaminess from the goat cheese.

  14. Ashley

    I LOVE peach and prosciutto together! This looks so so good Ashley! And so pretty too!
