Grilled Apricot and Brie Salad

Photos by Jaymi Heimbuch

Sometimes, the best recipes are the ones that do not require a recipe at all. This is one of my favorite dishes for that very reason. I made this when apricots were still in season but you could easily use a pear or even a persimmon. And while some would argue that grilling season has come and gone, unless it's snowing...I'm grillin'. And probably even then. Enjoy this dish with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

5 ripe apricots
Brie
Salad greens
Balsamic vinegar
Olive oil

1. Slice the apricots around the "seam" and pull them apart.

2. Remove the pits.

3. Place the apricots on the grill pit-side down and grill for about 5 minutes. You just want them to char.

4. Cut the brie into generous slices.

5. On salad plates, place some of the grilled apricots along with the brie and a handful of the salad greens.

6. Drizzle with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

7. Enjoy!
