Grilled Apricot and Brie Salad

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
Salad greens
Balsamic vinegar
Olive oil

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

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.
