Summer Salad : Grilled Nectarines

There are so much to buy from the market, I couldn't resist to buy back some juicy plump nectarines. One of my favorite fruits, so juicy, sweet and taste a bit like mango, well almost.
So I thought of grilling the fruit and mix them with some homegrown salad, dress with balsamic vinegar. There you go a healthy lunch, simple and refreshing.

Summer Salad : Grilled Nectarines
Ingredients (serves 2)
  • 2 nectarines - ripe and still firm
  • handful of lollo rosa salad leaves
  • some cherry tomatoes
  • some fresh mint leaves
  • some grated lemon zest
  • some grated parmesan cheese
  • dash of black peppercorn
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • dash of sea salt
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar + 1 tsp sugar- boil over hob to reduce the amount by half as it thickens.
  1. Slice the nectarines. Place over grill pan and grill about 4-5 minutes on each side on high heat. You'll have nicely grill mark on nectarines. Remove and set aside.
  2. Place the nectarine, tomatoes, salad leave, chopped mint leaves in a mixing bowl.
  3. Add all the other ingredients and mixed well with your hand. Set aside.
  4. Serve on plate as starter with toast or baguette.
Simple and nice.....
