Nectarine, almond and prosciutto salad
Ingredients (for 4 people):
4 big handfuls of fresh greens from your garden (rocket and watercress work well)
1/2 cup almonds, toasted
1 packet prosciutto, parma ham or black forest ham
Balsamic vinegar and olive oil – we used Rio Largo)
1. Although they taste great fresh, griddling or lightly frying your nectarines makes them even sweeter. We put ours on the Cobb for a few minutes on either side.
2. It’s as simple as placing all the ingredients together in a bowl and topping with your griddled nectarines. Drizzle with balsamic and olive oil.
Look at that! What an easy peach Cobb-ler.
Interestingly, this salad contains both nectarines and almonds but have you heard that you can’t plant these two trees side by side? Apparently, the nectarine/peach and the almond are sibling species and can therefore easily cross-pollinate resulting in some very bitter tasting almonds. At least they still taste great together in salads, hey?
