This salad is worth making a double recipe of the Honey-Brushed Grilled Nectarines once you have the grill fired up! Serve the extras over yogurt or ice cream for a sweet treat.arugula-nectarine-salad-plain

2 nectarines, halved and pitted
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 recipe Simple Arugula Salad with Lemon (or 4 cups arugula leaves, cleaned and dried)
