  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon lime zest
  • 2 limes lime juice
  • 1 ½ tablespoons tequila
  • 1 ½ tablespoons sriracha
  • cup olive oil
  • 1 lb fresh mozzarella cheese sliced thin

Instructions

  • Cut peaches into 1/4 inch rounds, cutting inward from the sides until you reach the pit. Reserve 1 cup of peach pieces left over after cutting the rounds. You will need about 4 peach slices per serving.
  • In a food processor add 1 cup of chopped peaches, green onions, chopped cilantro, honey, salt, lime zest. lime juice from 2 limes and tequila. Process until smooth but with some small chunks. Add oil and pulse for 3-4 times until combined. Set aside.
  • Spray the grill or grill pan with cooking spray. Brush peach rounds with the dressing and grill over medium high heat, 350º to 400º, about 3 minutes per side until there are grill marks.
  • Layer peaches and cheese slices alternately and drizzle sauce over the top. There is enough dressing for 6 to 8 stacks of peaches.
  • Peach dressing can be refrigerated for a few days.

Notes

Try to use peaches that are a little firm, if they are too ripe, they will fall apart on the grill.
