Grilled peach salad with Parma ham & Colwick cheese

grilled peach salad

Serves 4

  • 4 ripe white or yellow peaches

  • 6 slices of quality Parma ham

  • 50 g Colwick cheese

  • ½ a radicchio lettuce, finely sliced

  • quality balsamic vinegar

  • extra virgin olive oil

  • sea salt

  • freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the grill to full whack. Place the whole peaches onto a snug-fitting baking tray and pop under the grill for 8 to 10 minutes, or until soft and blackened on top, then leave aside to cool.



Once cool, peel the skin off the peach, then halve, discard the stone and tear the flesh into rough 2cm chunks.



Arrange the Parma ham on plates, crumble over the cheese and scatter the peach chunks and radicchio on top. In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons balsamic with 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and drizzle over the salad. Season lightly with salt and pepper, before serving.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
