Roasted Peaches with Lemon Ginger Vinaigrette

Peaches and nectarines are still available in farmer’s markets and supermarkets, so if you see them, grab a few. Bring out the last gasp of summer flavor by roasting the peaches with a lemon ginger vinaigrette, whisked together with fresh mint.

Use very ripe peaches for the best flavor (this is a good way to use slightly over-ripe peaches). Cut them in half and remove the pits, then mix up a sweet vinaigrette out of fresh ginger, fresh lemon juice, and fresh mint.

Drizzle the vinaigrette over the peaches, and roast them in a hot oven. They’ll have a slightly crisp crust on the outside, and be juicy, sweet and delicious on the inside. You can serve these versatile peaches alone, sliced over dairy-free ice cream, or as a side dish with meat or fish.
