Even in the dead of winter, it was worth firing up the grill. I don't even like nectarines, and this was delicious. Even picky teenager liked the pork and nectarines - though he passed on the spinach. I used Non-Fat Feta but other than that, recipe perfect as is. Delicious and easy - and GREAT assembled again for lunch next day.
Spinach Salad with Grilled Pork Tenderloin and Nectarines
Grilling heightens the sweetness and flavor of the nectarines. Because they have such thin skins, nectarines don't require peeling for this dish. However, you may substitute fresh peeled peaches if you prefer.
