There is a food festival I have been to a couple of times with some family friends, where every morning the festival puts on a free breakfast of grilled peaches, roasted nuts, honey and fresh yoghurt.
There is nothing quite like a grilled peach, it makes the already sweet fruit catch the heat and turn like caramel.
The salad is for really hot, really lazy days. I like it on it’s own for lunch with some nice bread, olive oil and balsamic, but to be honest a grilled peach goes with near enough anything.
I like to serve with toasted pine nuts but any toasted nut would be equally delicious.
Serves 3 as a side
2 balls of fresh mozzarella
1 small bag of pea shoot leaves/ rocket or gem lettuce
1 large handful of pistachios
Olive or rapeseed oil
Set up your platter with the washed leaves and ripped mozzarella
Slice your peaches into segments and grill with a drizzle of oil and honey
Leave on the grill for 3 minutes, once the skin colours they are ready
Place on top of your leaves
Cover with your chopped nuts
Drizzle with oil and balsamic vinegar
Season to serve
