Grill up a sweet and savory side dish bursting with flavor!
Grilled Gorgonzola Nectarines
4 ripe nectarines

½ cup gorgonzola cheese

¼ cup crushed pecans

Vegetable oil

Prepare grill to medium-high heat. Wash nectarines, cut in half, remove pits. (You can scoop out a slightly bigger hole with a melon-baller.) Brush oil over cut side of fruit and place on grill, cut side down. Cook until nectarines have hash marks and begin to caramelize, about four minutes. Turn over and cook an additional two minutes. Remove from heat and arrange on plate, cut side up. Fill centers with gorgonzola cheese. Drizzle with honey and top with chopped pecans. You can also garnish with freshly ground black pepper if desired.
