We had a bit of an adventure through Oakleigh getting all the ingredients for the dish. Hamsley's goal was to get everything we needed without going into the supermarket chains. In doing this, we discovered the Oakleigh fresh food market, and the lovely shop keepers running them.
Ham Salad with Peach and Pecan
Get your hands on:
4 small ripe peaches
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 buffalo mozzarella cheese
100g baby rocket leaves
250g leg ham, sliced off the bone
40g pecans, roughly chopped
1. Halve the peaches and remove the skin before slicing them into a bowl. Add the olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and toss to combine. Season lightly with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
2. Tear the mozzarella into bite-sized pieces. Arrange the rocket on a serving platter and top with the leg ham and mozzarella. Add the peaches and pecans and drizzle with any remaining dressing.
