6 firm-ripe nectarines, halved and pitted

Vegetable oil, as needed

Maytag blue cheese or mascarpone, as needed

Honey, preferably wildflower, as needed

Fresh coarse-ground black pepper

Fresh mint leaves or sprigs, for garnish


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill or grill pan. Brush the cut sides of the nectarines with oil and place on the grill, cut-side down. Grill until caramelized. Turn over and grill until almost soft, about 1 to 2 minutes more.
  2. Transfer the nectarines to a platter, cut-side up, and place a dollop of cheese in the center of each. Drizzle with honey and grind fresh pepper, to taste, over the top. Garnish with the mint and serve.
