Preparation: 5 mins | Cooking: 15-20 mins | Serves: 2 cups (approx)
500 gm nectarines, (approx 3)*
2 red onions, med
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp cracked black pepper
3 springs (2 tbsp) mint leaves (optional)
1 green chilli (optional)


CUT the nectarines in halve and remove the stone.
SLICE each half into 4 large pieces (more pieces if large fruit).
CUT the red onion into similar sized pieces.
MIX the nectarine and onion in a bowl with the oil and pepper.
HEAT a grill to medium-high temperature.
COOK the nectarine and onion, stirring regularly. (They will caramelize and blacken slightly, this is not burnt. If the fruit sticks to the pan add a little more oil.)
COOL and chop into smaller pieces adding the mint and chilli, if desired.

* Substitute nectarine with peaches or plums.
