Now that summer is in full swing, buying stone fruit by the case is cheaper than ever… but what to do with all that delicious tree-ripened treasure before it starts to spoil?? Try this EASY (and I mean EASY) clean-eating dessert that will impress everyone.
Grilled Nectarines with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Vinegar
2-3 ripe nectarines, halved (this recipe also works well with peaches! Just wash well to remove the “fuzz” prior to grilling)
1-2 oz Goat Cheese/Chevre
Balsamic Glaze (this one is delicious, but here is a recipe if you want to make from scratch! I was not that ambitious)
Olive oil spray
First, preheat grill to high. Wash nectarines and cut them in half. To halve them, cut along the “seam” and then twist. The pit will be exposed, just pull it out. This is easy to do when the nectarine is ripe!
Next, spray lightly with olive oil. Also, it’s not a bad idea to brush the grill lightly with oil as well.
Apply the nectarines to the hot grill, cut side down. Grill for about 4 minutes. Flip with tongs, and grill another 2-3 minutes.
Add about 1/4-1/2 oz of goat cheese to the pit indent, and drizzle with balsamic glaze. Bon Appetit!
