$5 Dessert: Grilled Apricots with Ricotta and Balsamic Vinegar

  • Prep Time 0:05
  • Cook Time 0:05
  • Estimated Cost $5.00

Can you think of anything more wonderful than sitting outside on a warm summer evening, sipping chilled white wine or beer, and eating these gorgeous little treats? I qualify them as dessert but they’re savory enough to join a dinner spread as a side dish.


  • 4 apricots $1
  • 1/4 cup ricotta $4 for 10 oz.
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar Pantry
  • black pepper Pantry
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil (if using grill pan) Pantry


  1. Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. If using grill pan, brush with vegetable oil.
  2. Split the apricots in half lengthwise, discarding the pit. Grill flesh-side down for 3-5 minutes or until grill-marks appear and the fruit softens slightly.
  3. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate.
  4. Drizzle the apricots' grilled side lightly with the balsamic vinegar. Top each one with a dollop of ricotta and freshly-cracked black pepper.

Makes 8 halves.

I had the pleasure last summer of having Gabi make this for me. It was one of the culinary highlights of my life—just saying folks. . .
