Every year my husband and I go to Lake Arrowhead for the 4th of July weekend with our family. My sister-n-law has a beautiful house there overlooking the lake. We spend our time on the lake, but we also spend a fare amount of time cooking, eating, drinking and hanging out on the patio.
I love to experiment with new foods together, so I came up the this yummy appetizer where I grilled peaches marinated in chocolate balsamic vinegar.
What can go wrong when you put fresh peaches in anything right? I served the grilled peaches with buratta cheese and candied pecans with a small amount of honey drizzled on top. I served it with some cranberry and pumpkin seed crackers, but you can pretty much serve this with any type of cracker and it would taste great!
I love buratta cheese because it’s creamer than traditional mozzarella cheese and it has a richer flavor. If you have never tried it, I highly recommend it. I use it a lot when I make my Caprese salad as well.
You can find buratta cheese in most stores, but if you cannot find it traditional mozzarella would taste great with this too. Or if you are feeling more adventurous you could also try ricotta cheese which I almost tried. I will save that for another time.
These raincoast crisps are one of my favorite crackers. This particular brand is harder to find, but you can usually find similar ones in most stores.
