Healthy, because

This recipe provides calcium and healthy fats from the cheese, protein from the meat, and a lot of nutrients from the fruits. In addition to being low in calories and rich in fiber, nectarines are a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and potassium. These nutrients can help improve metabolism, digestion, and heart health. 

Serve this with a side of bread for a more filling salad or serve it on the side of a main dish.
