White Peach and Prosciutto Salad relies on premium produce. Simple quality ingredients married together is all this delicious salad needs. This is a salad that we make throughout the stone fruit season when sweet juicy peaches and nectarines are in peak season.
The salty prosciutto marries perfectly with the sweetness of the peaches, and the peppery baby rocket brings its own welcome addition to this simple but stunning, tasting salad. Add some rich vincotto dressing to the rocket leaves and you’ve got a party of four ingredients that were made for each other.
Perfect as a starter or table salad
White peach salad with prosciutto, rocket and caramelised vinegar makes for a quick, elegant starter or make up a huge platter of them for your next barbeque and watch them go.
We love white peaches. Their flavour is superb, luscious , juicy and sweeter than yellow peaches, with a light creamy flesh. They are also lower in acid than yellow peaches so the natural sugar comes through in their flavour. Ditto for white nectarines.
Avoid pre packaged and sliced prosciutto and have it hand cut at your local deli. Packet prosciutto works out far more expensive than having it sliced for you. The meat is delicious, salty and very flavourful. It pairs beautifully with white peaches.
Vincotto balsamic dressing
Vincotto balsamic is worth seeking out if you don’t know it. It can be infused with citrus and has a deep colour and caramel flavour. Our favourite is made locally in Jen’s village and is infused with orange. Big shout out to Pomodora’s of Maleny, Queensland for their stunning orange vincotto product. It is made with orange zest and port, perfect for this salad. Vincotto marries beautifully with baby rocket leaves with their peppery flavour.

Coo Coo just adores anything that is soft and snuggly. He pulled this soft blanket off the bed and draped himself on it in the living room. Best to let sleeping dogs lie in comfort we think.
