This 3-ingredient recipe will easily become a last-minute dessert staple—it’s ready in just 5 minutes. It's a treat straight out of Tuscany, often served with a glass of dessert wine. The flavor combinations are simple yet wonderfully complex. When selecting nectarines, look for fruits with a fragrant aroma and skin that gives a little when pressed with your finger. Unripe nectarines are very firm, while overripe ones will be very soft. One other tip: the red blush on a nectarine doesn’t indicate ripeness. Instead, if you’re looking at their color, look for fruits with a uniform golden color without a trace of green. Serve crunchy, fat-free biscotti or amaretti cookies on the side
