Nectarines in a Balsamic Glaze: Inspiration from Adversity

The other day I was getting ready for work.. packing up my lunch as per usual. I decided on a salad with cherry tomatoes, cheddar, greens, and a balsamic dressing. I threw a nectarine into the box for good measure, and out the door I went.

At lunch time, after a rather mundane day, I opened my lunch box to find that disaster had indeed befallen my salad. The lid popped off, dressing exploding everywhere.. including on my nectarine. I tried to clean everything up a bit and salvage lunch, but .. well there was really no saving it because the nectarine was a bit smashed and covered in salad dressing. The salad was kind of demolished, so I ate what I could of it, and settled on the nectarine.

Talk about serendipitous! It turns out that balsamic on an over ripened nectarine is actually REALLY FREAKING GOOD!

Thus inspiring my delicious dessert:
