This weeks Summer recipe inspiration is grilled apricots and nectarines on the BBQ (strawberries and peaches are also great grilled) – it really does bring out the flavors and is a great compliment to BBQ meats, zucchini, asparagus and other BBQ roasted vegetables. Baste them while grilling with mixed olive oil and balsamic for an extra bit of zing!
Grilled Nectarine and Apricot Salad
Serves 6 to 8, prep 5 min, cooking 5 min
4 – 6 Nectarines, halved and stones removed
4 – 6 Apricots, halved and stones removed
a handful fresh local farms mint
Juice of 1 lemon
¼ cup pumpkin seeds (any seeds /roasted nuts will do)
3 handfuls of salad greens (baby spinach and rocket in this recipe)
Feta Cheese to finish
8 slices prosciutto/ham if you’d like a quick and easy weeknight meal in one and are not adding any BBQ meats
Grill fruit cut side down on the BBQ or stove top grilling pan for 5 minutes until they have softened and are smelling amazing! On a serving platter place the greens, then BBQ meats or prosciutto slices, grilled fruit and top with pumpkin seeds/nuts and mint leaves. Squeeze over lemon and drizzle some organic yogurt…so yummy. Refrigerate until ready to serve…get ready for the applause!
Have a super week ahead and happy local farms eating!
