A Salad of Peach, Mozzarella, Parma Ham & Honey

Hope you have all been enjoying that burst of hot weather while I've been sweating it out in the kitchen. The sun is a double edged sword for a chef as it not only makes life very hot in a commercial kitchen, but if there is a garden it gets super busy as well! 

I decided to cook an easy, Italian inspired lunch for the in-laws, and this was one of three dishes I prepared. Really easy to make, more an assembly of ingredients than a recipe. 

Parma Ham - 80g
Peaches - 2, stoned and torn into bits
Basil - a few leaves torn
Buffalo Mozarella - 1 large ball, torn into bits
Honey - 2 or 3 tsps
Extra Virgin olive oil - to drizzle
Chilli flakes - a pinch or two

Lightly season the peaches and mozzarella with salt and pepper, then just artfully arrange everything on a nice plate. Drizzle with the honey and olive oil just before you serve and sprinkle with the chilli flakes. Job done.
