Roasted Nectarine Salad with Toasted Almonds and Bay Blue
Serves 4

2 nectarines, halved, pitted & chopped into ½” chunks
½ teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
¼ cup olive oil
salt & pepper
6 ounces mixed salad greens, clean and dry
½ cup toasted slivered almonds
3 ounces Point Reyes Bay Blue, crumbled

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Toss nectarines in ½ teaspoon olive oil and a pinch of salt. Place on parchment paper-lined sheet pan and cook until soft and a little caramelized, about 10-15 minutes. Set aside.
In a small bowl combine honey, Dijon and vinegar. Gradually whisk in ¼ cup olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Toss salad greens with about half of salad dressing, adding more a little at a time until your desired amount. Season with salt and pepper, as needed. Place dressed greens in salad bowl or on salad plates.
