Ingredients
  • 2 ripe Nectarines, halved and pitted
  • ¼ cup Blue Cheese, crumbled
  • ¼ cup Pecans, toasted and salted
  • ⅓ pound Salanova organic Salad Mix
  • 2 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced
  • pinch Salt
  • pinch Pepper
Instructions
  1. Get a medium-high fire going in the grill.
  2. Whisk the vinegar, oil, mustard, garlic, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Halve and pit the nectarines, and brush them with oil.
  4. Place them on the grill flesh side down, and leave them there for 3 minutes.
  5. Flip, and continue grilling for another minute or two.
  6. (If you like, include a sprig of fresh thyme on the grill for the remaining couple minutes. The slightly charred leaves can be picked off and whisked into the dressing)

  8. Serve everything together on a platter.
