In the summer I love to serve salads and side dishes that don’t require cooking. It sounds silly but buy nectarines that actually smell like nectarines. The sweet aroma indicates they are ripe. This pairs well with anything grilled or a bit spicy.
NECTARINE AND MOZZARELLA SALAD
1 1/2 pounds ripe nectarines, from about 3 to 4 nectarines, cut into wedges
1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
4 ounces fresh mozzarella, torn into pieces
1/4 cup packed basil leaves
In a small bowl toss nectarines with 1 tablespoon olive oil and a large pinch of salt. Toss in mozzarella and basil leaves and taste for seasoning, adding more olive oil and salt if necessary. Serve in a shallow bowl or platter.
