4 servings (plus additional dressing)
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 nectarines, halved and pitted
  • Olive oil, for drizzling
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 6 ounces spring mix salad greens
  • 2 ounces Stilton, Gorgonzola or other blue cheese
Directions
  • Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.

  • Drizzle the nectarine halves with a little olive oil. Grill cut-side down for 2 to 3 minutes, turning midway to achieve lovely grill marks. Set aside.

  • In a bowl, whisk together the honey, Dijon and vinegar. Whisk in the olive oil to emulsify. Add some salt and pepper and mix.

  • Toast the slivered almonds in a small skillet over medium-low heat until just turning golden brown.

  • In a large bowl, toss the salad greens with enough of the dressing to lightly coat. (You won't use all of the dressing; save to have on another salad tomorrow!) Toss in the warm toasted almonds.

  • Divide the salad among 4 plates. Place a nectarine half on each serving. Drizzle the nectarines with a little more dressing. With a fork, cut the blue cheese into chunks and distribute among the plates.

Grill more fruit if you'd like each plate to have two halves instead.
