Sweet as a Peach: Summer Peach Party Recipes
posted on July 11th, 2017 by Nicole Vuletich
Peach season is in full effect! While you may be able to find peaches and other stone fruits in store year-round, you’d be hard pressed to match the delicious flavor, texture, and quality of a peach that is enjoyed during peak season. We are crazy excited about the bounty of beautiful, fresh peaches in store, and gracing our kitchens. To provide you with some peach-enjoying inspiration, we’ve been hard at work incorporating hand-selected perfect peaches into amazing creations you are sure to love. Check out some of these sweet (and sometimes savory) products in store while peaches are in season!
Handcrafted Grilled Peaches with Balsamic Glaze
Our grilled peaches are a new favorite around here, full of sweet and smoky flavor that makes everyone swoon. After we pull them off the grill, we give them a drizzle of our own Aged Balsamic Vinegar to make the flavors pop. Find these in the grab and go section of our Deli.
Handcrafted Peach Salsa
Also in our Deli, our fresh handcrafted peach salsa features ripe yellow peaches mixed with chopped bell pepper, red onion, and a sprinkling of serrano chile for just the right amount of sweet heat. Try serving it alongside citrus-marinated shrimp fresh off the grill.
Citrus Grilled Shrimp w/ Bristol Farms Peach Salsa
1 pound large raw wild shrimp, peeled and deveined (leave tail on for presentation)
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest from 1 lime
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 container fresh Bristol Farms Peach Salsa
1. Coat an outdoor grill or stove-top grill pan with cooking spray and preheat to medium-high. Skewer shrimp on metal or wooden skewers or place in a grilling basket. Set aside.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, lime juice & zest, olive oil, mustard, lime zest, salt, and black pepper. Liberally brush the citrus marinade all over shrimp. Grill shrimp 3 minutes on 1 side. Flip and cook 1 to 3 more minutes until shrimp are bright pink and cooked through. Plate the shrimp with a large spoonful of peach salsa on top.
Handcrafted Peach & Tomato Salad
Sweet and juicy yellow peaches are the perfect match for vine-ripened tomatoes and savory feta cheese. We toss everything in our trademark citrus dressing for the freshest, lightest, most delicious salad of the summer. Find our peach and tomato salad in the grab-and-go section of our Deli.

In our Bakery, our fresh peach tarts are handcrafted using only the sweetest yellow and white peaches. Mixed with a sweet glaze, this dessert will impress your taste buds as well as any guests!
Handcrafted Chicken and Peach Sausage
Our chicken peach sausage features our antibiotic-free air-chilled chicken mixed with ripe yellow peaches and a medley of herbs & peppers for just the right amount of sweet & heat fresh off the grill. Pair these sausages with a warmed brioche hot dog bun from our bakery, and a schmear of whole grain mustard.
