We are in the midst of yet another heatwave, with temperatures climbing as high as 31°C in the shade and inauspicious thunder storms hovering above our heads. It's a lot for our normally frost-bitten toes.
My beloved flat peaches aka Saturn peaches made it to the shops very early this summer.
I've been enjoying them since the middle of June.
Plain. In salads. Baked (which I will show you soon). Poached.
Summer is a great time for salads. Here's a simple one with peaches.
Peach and mozzarella salad
coppa or any other air-dried ham
a big bunch of salad greens
a good handful of pine nuts
your favourite salad dressing*
Gently roast the pine nuts. Cut or tear all the other ingredients into bite sized pieces, toss everything together, drizzle with the dressing and scatter the pine nuts over the top.
*I used sea-buckthorn, lime and mustard dressing which can be seen in the bottle in the last photo.
