Grilled Nectarine Salad with Mint and Citrus Vinaigrette

Mint and nectarines pair perfectly together and this salad showcased both of these ingredients wonderfully. It was fresh and sweet, perfect for lunch for a hot summer day.


3 large handfuls of mixed greens
2 stalks kale, finely sliced
1/4 red onion, finely sliced
3 nectarines, pit removed and sliced
2 tablespoons mint, sliced plus one sprig for garnish
1/2 teaspoon sunflower oil


Preheat bbq to medium high heat.

Brush nectarines with sunflower oil and sprinkle with salt & pepper.

Grill nectarines until grill marks appear.  Set aside and allow to cool.

Place lettuce, kale and mint into a bowl or large plate and toss with Citrus Vinaigrette (recipe follows) to mix.

Place nectarines across the top of the salad and serve.

Citrus Vinaigrette


2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 orange, juiced
1/2 lemon juiced
1 tablespoon honey
salt & pepper to taste


Add all ingredients into a small mason jar and shake until combined.
