Nothing says summer like afternoons by the grill. Living in an apartment, we don’t often get the chance to grill out, but when we do it is so much fun! Recently we spent a weekend house sitting at my husband’s Tia’s house and she has a great little porch perfect for grilling.
Now, we didn’t actually have a grill, but since it is getting towards the end of summer we were able to pick up a little portable one for really cheap.
Grill+peaches+corn= Grilled Peach Salsa= Summer Perfection! Click To Tweet
It was such a blast grilling everything we could find. I figured if we were going to grill, we might as well grill meat for the week. When I was shopping for meat I saw some beautiful peaches and inspiration hit. Everything else in this salsa are things I already had in the fridge. It was one of those recipes where you just start thinking,
This might be really good!
and you luck out and it’s perfect! The flavors meld together so perfectly, it tastes like a bit of summer heaven! Of course, in the middle of all this grilling, I got a bit thirty. If grilling makes you as thirsty as it makes me, be sure to check out this Strawberry Pink Peppercorn Mocktail from This Mess is Ours.
Fresh ingredients are key to grilling fruits and vegetables. There is just something about a bit of time on the grill that brings out the natural sweetness and gives a hint of smokiness. It doesn’t take very long to grill peaches. Just brush with a little oil to make sure they don’t stick. The oil also gives them a bit of char. You could use a basting brush to keep things oiled, but we use the husks from the corn. It works great!
Our little grill is a propane grill, but it has a space where you can add some charcoal, so we did. Charcoal really adds to the flavor. You could also use cedar chips or other wood to add a bit of flavor.

A Few Recipe Notes
I cheated. I microwaved it in the husk for about 10 minutes and then put it on the grill, just to finish it and add flavor.
This recipe is naturally gluten free and top 8 allergy free, however, if you are sensitive to corn, it is perfectly fine to add more peaches and leave it out.
