Grilled Peaches with Olives and Gouda paired with Mathis Rosé or Sparkling Rosé, Loriella Pinot Grigio or Domenica Amato Grenache Blanc

Grilled Peaches with Olives and Gouda paired with Mathis Rosé or Sparkling Rosé, Loriella Pinot Grigio or Domenica Amato Grenache Blanc

This recipe is inspired by one I discovered in Wine Enthusiast and was perfectly paired with a Pinot Grigio.

One of my husband’s favorite dishes is a grilled prosciutto wrapped peaches with burrata salad, so I couldn’t resist trying another grilled peach recipe. Plus, fresh peaches just feel like summertime. The diverse flavors and textures in the salad are more than satisfying, especially with a side of warm bread. This is intended to serve two people.

Ingredients:

* 1 small onion, thinly sliced
* 3 ripe peaches, pitted and halved
* About 1/2 cup Castelvetrano olives, pitted and sliced (use more if you like olives)
* Aged gouda, about 4-5 ounces, cut into small chunks
* 1 tsp honey
* 1 tsp red wine vinegar
* 3-4 cups arugula
* 1/2 cup Marcona almonds or toasted slivered almonds
* Olive oil
* Salt and Pepper

 

How to prepare:

1. Heat grill to high.
2. Place sliced onions on a piece of heavy-duty foil that can be folded over or on a vegetable grill grate. Drizzle with a little oil and salt, then place on the grill but not over direct heat so they cook slowly until caramelized, which will take 20-30 minutes.
3. While onions are cooking, brush or spray both sides of peaches with oil and season with salt.
4. Combine honey and vinegar in a bowl, add arugula and set aside.
5. During the last few minutes the onions are cooking, place peaches on grill and cook for about 1-2 minutes per side. Remove peaches and onions from grill.
6. Add peaches, onions, gouda and almonds to arugula, gently toss and serve.

 

Why these wines?

The spicy arugula with the sweet peaches and onions, salty olives and earthy gouda is already a party in the mouth but add a bright rosé and the party won’t stop! We love the Mathis Rosé of Grenache with this salad because it is such a versatile wine that enhances almost any dish. The salt in this salad will amplify the red fruit flavors in a Sparkling rosé like the Crush Collection Sparkling Rosé.

Before I go, I want to give a shout out to the tabletop company BE HOME. They make the most beautiful decor for entertaining! The salad bowl and serving set in the header art was a birthday gift from my two Major Crush buddies, Lou & Sonja, and I have to say, they make this delicious salad a feast for the eyes and the stomach!

 

Cheers!
