Grilled Stone Fruit Antipasto Plate

stonefruit-antipasto11

I saw this recipe a long time ago and had it in the back of my recipe box, just in case.  I was very curious about this combination and just the idea of it was very different.  Today I happenned to have some stone fruit and I needed a quick lunch, something light.

Surprisingly enought this was very yum-E.  The dressing heightened the sweetness of the fruit and I like the contrast of the tang that came from the vinegar.  I was plesantly surprised.  This dish is a great appetizer option for a special event.
