Whatcha doin?

Eating breakfast? I bet it’s some Peach French Toast

No? You’re eating lunch?  I bet (the sequel) that it’s a Grilled Pineapple Quinoa Bowl.

Still wrong?

Well then, my dear friendsies, you get a gold star.  A star for not contributing to the superiority complex of the typical “summer fruit.” (Pineapples, peaches, berries, cherries etc.)

The above mentioned fruit feel like they are better than all the other fruits because they get used the most once the sun comes out.

Nectarines want to be part of the fun in the sun too.

I know, they told me.

Stop looking at me like that.

It was kind of a strange event, and I don’t really want to talk about it.

But, for real, are there very many nectarine recipes? Do you eat them regularly?

If you do, it’s time to put your imagination cap on, and pretend that you don’t.

Obviously, I needed to un-hurt (a word?) their poor little fruity feelings.

So, they get their very OWN recipe.  If they had faces, they would look like this: :D x 20.

Now, onto my next question: Have you ever grilled nectarines? Oh.my.gosh you guys. I have decided that some kind of wizardry happens when you grill fruit.

I knew that pineapple gets extra magical, and now…so do nectarines.

The rest of the salsa is a pretty simple combo of feta cheese, fresh basil, onions and seasoning.  It’s sort of like a fruit salad.

On chicken.

For dinner.

Now that I read that, fruit salad on chicken doesn’t really sound like the capital city  of Yum Land but, you guys, it is.

And, I KNOW that you have had mango salsa (another Summer snob) so, it’s exactly like that.

But with a completely different fruit. So not really like that at all.

Whatever, you understand.

One more thing to talk about: THE COLOR.

Pretty food. Happy Eyeballs. Easy food. Happy Taylor.

      Aw thank you so much Gayle! I’m glad you don’t think it’s too ridiculous – sometimes I wonder!
      Yes, the salsa is definitely a by-the-spoonful…so maybe make extra? ;) Happy Wednesday pretty lady!

    Fruit salsa is one those must-make summer recipes. I particularly love pairing it with seafood (obvs since I don’t eat other meat haha). I have never made one with nectarines before — YUM!

    • Taylor Kiser says

      I could totally see this going over some fish or shrimp! Thanks lady! I love fruit salsa in the summah too! :)
