Nectarine, prosciutto & mozzarella salad

Nothing says summer dining as much as a gorgeously fresh salad which is big on flavour but quick and easy to prepare. I love the combination of sweet juice nectarine, salty prosciutto, creamy mozzarella and peppery rocket. I like to add a bit of avocado for extra heart healthy fat. This recipe serves 2 as a main course or 4 as a side dish.

  • 1 nectarine
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small avocado, halved, stoned and cut into eighths
  • 100g rocket
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves
  • 100g buffalo mozzarella
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 6 slices of prosciutto or serrano ham
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Cut the nectarine in half, remove the stone, then cut into eighths.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees celsius. Place nectarine slices on a baking tray with a drizzle of olive oil and a bit of black pepper.
  3. Tear mozzarella into small pieces, add to a small bowl with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, a few chopped basil leaves and a squeeze of lemon juice. Season well, mix and put to one side.
  4. Put the baking tray with the nectarine pieces in the oven and cook for 5-10 minutes until just starting to soften. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes.
  5. Place the rocket leave in a large salad bowl or dish. Arrange the mozzarella, nectarine pieces, slices of prosciutto or serrano ham and sliced avocado on top. Sprinkle over the remaining basil leaves.
