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.

 I topped the salad with a handful of almond flakes which added another nice texture to the finished salad.

Ingredients

  • 6 nectarines
  • handful of fresh thyme
  • handful of fresh rosemary
  • handful of fresh mint
  • 4 Parma ham slices
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 cos lettuces
  • 4 spring onions
  • 2 mozzarella balls roughly 300g
  • handful of tomatoes sundried tomatoes work really well too
  • handful of flaked almonds
  • olive oil
  • 1 juice of one lemon
  • balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Heat up a griddle pan (I like the ones with the lines so you can get a nice pattern on the fruit).
  • Cook the nectarines on high on both sides. Add a little water, a teaspoon or two, to the pan make a little syrup on the pan.
  • 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.
  • Drizzle over the olive oil and the lemon juice.
  • Add a small drizzle of balsamic vinegar over and with everything together before serving.
  • Sprinkle with flaked almonds and enjoy.

If you want to add a little spice add some chopped chilli or cook the chicken a hot sauce.

    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!5 stars

    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! 5 stars

    I am a HUGE fan of fruit and salads so this is right up my street. I do a similar salad with nectarines and goats cheese but I love the idea of parma ham and chicken. Delicious!5 stars

      I do love a tasty and healthy dish. I hate that there is such a thought that healthy means tasteless.
