Okay guys, I am a little scatter brained as I write this because I stayed up too late going to a concert last night and then had to wake up early to get ready to head out of town for my bachelorette party! So yes I made this recipe for dinner pre-concert last night and am now writing it pre-bachelorette but that does not take away from the deliciousness of this recipe! It should show how badly I needed to share it with you that I woke up early with minimal sleep to do so.

This salad is my favorite summer salad recipe I have come up with in my almost 8 years of blogging. Being topped with grilled fruit in kind of a game changer, especially when there is also prosciutto, almonds, and goat cheese involved as well. After grilling I did wrap a couple of the nectarines in prosciutto which made me think they’d also be great appetizer bites on their own (drizzled with balsamic reduction!) but I ended up leaving some unwrapped because I wanted you to see those beautiful grill marks!

As for the butter, instead of using plain boring butter I brushed the nectarines with Chef Shamy’s strawberry flavored honey butter. Guys, that stuff is dangerously good I could eat it off the spoon. I introduced Chef Shamy butter in my grilled avocado recipe so check out that post for more info about their company.
