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.
