Grilled Peaches (With Blue Cheese)

“This recipe was in the newspaper from I am not sure how to classify this dish. It may be a dessert since there is sugar and cheese or it could be a salad. "A rose by any other name..." * UPDATE: I saw Bobby Flay make this on a TV show yesterday and he added tiny greens on top of the peach halve drizzled olive oil and the balsamic and the blue cheese and served it along side pork chops so it seems like a side dish!”
