I was compensated for writing the original article, “Summer Stone Fruit,” and developing the recipe found in the June 2016 issue of Today’s Dietitian. I was not compensated for sharing the column or magazine with readers on my blog. All opinions are my own.

There’s a lot I love about the summer, one of which is all the fresh fruit that’s available. I can’t get enough of fresh berries, watermelon, cherries, nectarines, and plums. Do you know what those last three fruits I mentioned have in common? They’re stone fruits, also known as drupes and they are some of my absolute faves.

For this month’s issue of Today’s Dietitian Magazine, my Culinary Corner Column is about the nutritional benefits of stone fruit and some fun ways to use them in the kitchen beyond just eating them straight out of hand.

One of my favorite ways to enjoy nectarines, peaches, plums, and apricots is to grill them and add to salads, use as a topping for grilled meat or chicken, or serve them for dessert with a scoop of ice cream or a lightly sweetened yogurt sauce. Grilling, like roasting, caramelizes the fruit and brings out additional natural sweetness, which is especially helpful if the fruit isn’t ripe enough.

This recipe for grilled stone fruit with yogurt sauce is probably my favorite one that I have developed since I first started writing the Culinary Corner column last May. It’s low calorie, easy to make, and so pretty! And the perfect dessert to make for your Father’s Day barbecue and all summer long! I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!

  6. I love all the fruit of summer too! I get through so many berries and peaches this time of year, I can’t get enough!! I’ve never tried grilling stone fruit though – now I need to as these looks amazing and I love the yoghurt sauce too!

  7. I LOVE grilled fruit and I can’t believe I haven’t had any yet this summer. This post is my reminder and I’ll be making it this weekend. I love that you paired yours with yogurt instead of ice cream too!

  8. I love the grill marks on these peaches I was just looking for an idea for our grilling party and these will be perfect served with peach ice cream! WOW

  9. This is almost exactly what I do~ Thanks for sharing it and the pics are scrumptious too! I have tended towards grilling peaches and now may need to expand.. (peaches are my fave!)
    I have often served with fresh coconut ice ‘cream’ or frozen yogurt.. and have played with a yogurty sauce and herbs too!
    ALL are wonderful. “great minds…” YUM!

  10. Love the sound of these grilled peaches! And paired with that creamy Greek yogurt sauce, I bet it’s delicious!
