Grilled Peaches with Greek Yogurt, Honey, Lime Zest, and Vanilla

I have a small old-school Weber grill I haven't used in.... months.  Grilled peaches - something I've always wanted to make and I knew now was the time.  The assortment of peaches at the farmer's markets right now are amazing.  Grilling the peaches caramelize the sugars and make them even more juicy.  There are plenty of recipes of grilled peaches with either ricotta or mascarpone cheese.  To be honest, I never know which one to use.  I know I always have Greek yogurt in my fridge.  I'm sure you do, too.  I added a little bit of honey, vanilla, and a little vanilla to compliment the grilled peach.

2 peaches, just ripe
1 cup Greek yogurt, plain
2 tablespoons honey of your choice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (preferably paste)
zest of 1 lime (reserve some for garnish)

Preheat grill.  Cut each peach length-wise and remove pit.  Grill on each side until slightly charred, about 10 minutes.  In the meantime, mix the honey, vanilla, and lime zest into the yogurt and mix well.  Taste and adjust accordingly.  Spoon on top of each grilled halved peach.  Serve and enjoy immediately.  Makes 4 servings.
