Good idea Debe. I didn't have any nectarines, but I know they would be good and juicy too. I really loved this fresh, flavorful blend. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I made the peach relish 2 days ago. It was very tasty just as the recipe was, but for using with my cream cheese it needed a little "juice" to it, so I made a little balsamic vinegar reduction and added it to the mix and it was so yummy. I love the addition of the mint.

This recipe is worthy of any special dinner with or without guests. I'm going to make that relish and serve it with other things as well!

I don't eat the chicken but I am going to make this relish and server it over a block of light cream cheese w/ crackers. I think this would make a great appetizer. :)
