This is one of my favourite grill recipes ever. Those lovely colors, oh my goodness, how could you resist? And the sweetness of the nectarines is just so heavenly and together with the mint it’s something truly special. If you have the chance to use outdoor grill don’t miss it, the recipe is going to be even better with the slight smokey taste!
