Christmas can be stressful, all that build up for one day. However magical and festive it is, I sort of love the calm after the storm. Leftovers are a huge part of that, the stress of cooking for many has gone. Beautiful cold cuts of meat, piled with pickles and cheese. Pickling is one of my favourite things to do around Christmas time, in fact making jars of all different things brings me so much joy. I intend to hand out handmade gifts this year, I’m attempting chilli jam and different chutneys.
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.
