Peach and Prosciutto Salad with Goats Cheese

Fresh, juicy peaches are part of the ‘fiesta’ of delicious soft fruits available to us in the summer months. There is nothing quite like biting into a fleshy, sweet peach and feeling the juice dribble down your chin!

This is a super summer salad – you can serve the peaches cold, or but for a different twist lightly grill them and serve warm with the goats cheese crumbled over the top. Very delicious and a lovely addition to a summer party or barbecue. Quite healthy too!

Serves:                                  4

Preparation Time:              15 minutes (for cold) 25 minutes (grilled peaches)

Ingredients

  • 2 large peaches, stoned and cut into wedges
  • 250g/9oz goats cheese (or feta is just as good)
  • 8 slices prosciutto ham, or Serrano ham
  • 55g/2oz rocket
  • Sour dough bread, to serve

Verjuice dressing

  • 125ml/4fl.oz olive oil
  • 55ml/2fl.oz Live to Eat Verjuice
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Method

  1. Whisk together your dressing ingredients and season to taste.
  2. Lay most of the arugula on the bottom, then top with the peach wedges.
  3. Fold the ham around the peaches to make it look attractive.
  4. Crumble the goat’s cheese or feta over the top, then add a few more arugula leaves.
  5. Spoon over dressing.

Tip: If you are going to grill the peaches, don’t place too near the grill – they will burn and possibly have an unpleasant taste.
