We’re all about sweet peach pie and peach cobbler, but there’s so much more to make with season’s juiciest fruit. From peach salsa to fresh peach frozen yogurt, here are 11 sweet and savory recipes that are just peachy.

Peaches and cream: a match made in food heaven. This luscious frozen yogurt plays off of the sweetness of ripe summer peaches. We’d be pretty happy with a bowl of this every night after dinner, and happily it’s easy to make at home. Get our Peach Frozen Yogurt recipe.
2. Peach Bellini
Why yes, we’d love to get our daily serving of fruit in the form of a cocktail. This peach bellini is perfect for warmer weather: bubbly, just sweet enough, and refreshing. Get our Peach Bellini recipe.
3. Peach, Tomato, and Sweet Onion Salsa

4. Daniel Humm’s Peach Gazpacho
We expect nothing less than spectacular food from a chef like Daniel Humm, and his peach gazpacho doesn’t disappoint.

It’s simple to make and is a sophisticated and easy option for a dinner party. Get our Peach Gazpacho recipe.
5. Peach Shrub
Shrubs are hot right now, so get on board. These vinegar-based fruit drinks are the perfect base for mixing up a cocktail, or for pairing with soda water for a fizzy refresher. Get our Peach Shrub recipe.

8. Buttermilk Chicken with Peach-Tomato Salsa
Tangy buttermilk chicken topped with a side of sweet-spicy peach-tomato salsa might be a perfect meal. Even though peaches don’t take center stage here, they add a layer of flavor that makes a basic salsa recipe far more interesting. Get our Buttermilk Chicken with Peach-Tomato Salsa recipe.
9. Blackberry-Peach Cobbler
A cobbler bubbling with fruit and topped with tender biscuits is one of summer’s greatest pleasures. This version pairs blackberries with peaches, which we love for both looks and flavor. Add a scoop of ice cream and call it a party. Get our Blackberry Peach Cobbler recipe.
10. Grilled Chicken Sausages with Peach-Sage Skewers
Salty grilled chicken sausages need something to offset all that savory flavor. Peaches do the trick: Pairing the fruit with sage on easy-to-prep skewers elevates the fruit’s flavor profile to something chef-worthy. That’s right, make this and look good in front of all of your foodie friends. Get our Grilled Chicken Sausages with Peach-Sage Skewers recipe.
