New York Steak with Baby Greens and Grilled Nectarines

Summer grilling and stone fruits are two things that go pretty perfectly together at our house. We love grilling peaches, plums and nectarines. G makes a fab grilled peach dish with balsamic vinegar that we look forward to every August when the peaches come in.

Grilling is also so very forgiving to these fruits that struggle to ever get sweet enough in the state of Washington.

This Thai steak salad dish is the perfect vehicle to showcase grilled nectarines.
