I love to pair fruit with cheese in salads.  I really love grilling my fruit before adding to the salad, it just brings out an earthy sweetness that I can’t resist.  Try this super delicious, low calorie, and healthy arugula salad with grilled nectarines – it’s sure to be a hit at your next cookout.

Grilling the nectarines brings out the full flavor of the fruit. The sweet, tartness of the nectarines paired with gorgonzola is the perfect complement to the bite of arugula.
