Herb salad with peaches and prosciutto

We are big fans of adding fruit to salads. The sweetness makes a lovely contrast to the savoury flavours, and here peaches work really well with the prosciutto. Bring the prosciutto to room temperature before serving to get the full flavour and, if you feel like it, you can add torn mozzarella to the salad, too.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (loosely packed) small frisée leaves
  • ½ cup (loosely packed) each dill, chervil, basil, mint, tarragon, parsley and chives, cut into 4cm lengths
  • 2 golden shallots, thinly sliced
  • 3 ripe peaches, cut into wedges
  • 6 prosciutto slices
Mustard dressing
  • 60 ml extra-virgin olive oil (¼ cup)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • ½ tsp Dijon mustard

Method

Main
  • 1
    For mustard dressing, whisk ingredients in a bowl to combine. Season to taste and set aside.
  • 2
    Combine frisée and herbs in a bowl with shallot, drizzle with dressing, season to taste and toss to combine.
  • 3
    Scatter peaches and prosciutto over a platter, top with herb salad and serve.
