Update – I am the runner up of the Summer Treats competition with this recipe!

To celebrate the freshness and joy of summer food I have a gorgeous #summertreats dinner to share. I give you the very easy and delicious grilled nectarine, chicken and Parma ham summer salad.

This salad works so well with hot or cold chicken and is a brilliant dish to take on a picnic. This is a great mix of fruit, herbs, creamy mozzarella, chickens and that slightly salty Parma ham. I like to think of this meal as a starter, main and dessert all in one.

 The nectarines with the herbs were delicious and worked so well. I love the smell of thyme and rosemary with the nectarines. You could cook this on the barbecue of in a grill pan.

  • Slice the nectarines and remove the stones. Sprinkles with a handful of thyme, rosemary and a little lemon juice. Add a tiny sprinkle of caster sugar.

  • Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • In a separate pan cook the chicken on a low heat, or steam however you fancy cooking it.
  • When it's cooked remove from the heat and cup up into thin slices. If you want the chicken hot do the chicken last.
  • Cut up the lettuce and put it in a large bowl along with the chopped tomatoes, spring onions and the fresh thyme, rosemary and a little mint.
  • Pull apart the mozzarella and Parma ham and add to the salad.
  • Add the chicken and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.

    Oh my god YUM! This looks incredible. I would never have thought to put nectarines in a salad – far less to actually grill the nectarines, too. Amazing, thanks so much for sharing!

    This sounds like an unusual combination for a salad! I’d usually have melon with parma ham but maybe I’ll try it with chicken and nectarine for a change!
