Chicken Sausage Grilled Nectarines

Grilled Oregano Chicken

This is what I call a summer ploughman’s dinner.  Sausage, cheese and fruit with a gourmet twist. The caramelized flavor of the grilled nectarines is summer at it’s best.

side: nectarines with burrata

PREP: 15 minutes
COOK: 10 minutes
YIELD: Serves 4 with 1-1/2 sausage per person

1½ pounds chicken Italian sausage links; any variety, organic preferred (about 6 links)

6 nectarines (for 2 dinners)

2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

  1. Cut each nectarine in half, remove pit, and place on grill, cut side down, for 3-4 minutes. Remove from grill; reserve 2 nectarines (4 halves) for another dinner.
  2. In a mixing bowl, make dressing by combining olive oil, vinegar, honey, and salt; set aside.
  3. Spoon one Tablespoon of burrata over each grilled nectarine and sprinkle with chopped almonds.
