Simple Peach and Prosciutto Salad

As we are about to head in to July and the beginning of peach season, I thought I would make a super simple salad containing them. Juicy and sweet and perfectly combined with salty prosciutto, creamy avocado, peppery rocket and finished with a honey and thyme dressing. I feel like a bit of a cheat calling this a ‘recipe’ as it really is so simple to pull together. Just griddle the peaches and whip up the dressing, five minutes to a tasty lunch.

Roasted Tomato & Garlic Prosciutto Pasta

If you make this, I promise the smell that fills your house is worth it alone. Sweet bubbling tomatoes, garlic and chilli waft out of the pan like nectarine for tomato lovers like me. Now if you have a friend or spouse that doesn’t like tomatoes, like my husband…they’ll still eat it. In fact they’ll even have seconds, I mean he was pretty hungry but he really doesn’t like tomatoes. He did request for extra meat, in fact he requested salami but he’s not the cook so.

On the other hand, if you want to make this veggie go ahead. The sweet flavours of the roasted garlic and tomato make this flavourful enough. But I love adding salty prosciutto…to anything really. I’ve used wholewheat pasta because we cut out white pasta and bread a long time ago in our house. Can’t resist a potato though, potatoes and cheese are my downfall.
