Directions
1

Slice the peaches into sixths, wrap firmly with bacon, and skewer with tooth picks through flesh side of the fruit. In an airtight plastic bag, pour in the oil, honey, maple syrup, bourbon, herbs, seasonings and the skewered fruit. Mix well to ensure the bacon-wrapped peaches are entirely covered. Seal and set aside in the refrigerator to marinate for 2-3 hours.

2

Fifteen minutes prior to cooking, preheat your grill to high.

3

Remove wrapped peaches from the refrigerator, discard marinade and apply immediately to the grill over direct heat, with an open lid. Sear on each side for 2-3 minutes until the bacon is crisp and fruit is just tender, ensuring not to overcook. Pull peaches from the grill, remove skewers and rest for 3-5 minutes uncovered.

4

Meanwhile, toss the salad mix, tomatoes, and shallots. Plate salad and dress with the grilled peaches. Garnish with pistachios, parmesan and drizzle in a tangy balsamic reduction. Season additionally to taste. Serve.
