  • How to Chiffonade -- Chiffonade is a slicing technique to cut basil into long thin strips. This can be done by stacking basil leaves, rolling them tightly, then slicing the leaves perpendicular to the roll.
  • This salad is also delicious with fresh peaches or plums instead of nectarines.
  • If you do not like Gorgonzola cheese, this salad is also great with crumbled feta, crumbled goat cheese or shaved asiago cheese.
