Nectarines may be unexpected on the grill, but this is sure to be a hit at your next potluck. The salty feta intermingles well with the sweet nectarine infused with a hint of smoke.

This recipe comes to us from Vivian of Macca’s Meatless Monday.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
