Nectarine's were not in season so I used mandarin oranges. I really liked this, but it was not a hit with the family. I think the balsamic vinegar was a little too strong for them.

I was pleasantly surprised at how great this salad was. I feel like the title of the recipe fails to capture the deliciousness!
