So simple in its construction and divine in flavors, this is one you are left wondering "why didn't I think of that?" I love the sharp contrast of fruit with balsamic and often enjoy it with strawberries or oranges. I am planning to make this as an elegant dessert for a BBQ grilling the peach halves and pouring the blueberries and sauce on top. Yummy!

Chef Kate is right...this is a "10 star" recipe, especially with peaches fresh from the tree and served with vanilla frozen yogurt. Ellie Krieger has a similar recipe using cherries instead of blueberries.

This recipe was recommended by Chef #174096. I served it atop Recipe #168715 for a wonderful brunch item. The two recipes work wonderfully well together. Thanks for sharing!
