    1. COOK the couscous. Shave Pecorino with a vegetable peeler.

    2. CUT the peach and apricot into segments and remove the stones. Brush with melted butter.

    3. HEAT a grill pan over high heat. Using tongs, place the fruit segments on the pan. Cook for about 2 minutes, then turn and grill the other side. Once the fruit is nicely marked by the grill, remove with tongs and set aside on a plate.

    4. MIX the vinegar and olive oil in a small bowl; add salt and pepper to taste.

    5. MIX the the cooked couscous with the finely chopped chives, strips of salami and shaved Pecorino. Pour the dressing over the couscous and mix together with a fork. Place the couscous in a large serving dish and place the grilled stone fruit on top.
