This salad is just summer on a platter! It is the perfect light dinner for a warm evening, or a special al fresco lunch. I love how the sweet nectarines pair with earth olive oil and creamy mozzarella. Make sure the nectarines are ripe and soft to get the most out of their flavour. I also like to serve this when I am entertaining along side some other salads, grilled meats or bread. It is great for entraining since all the ingredients can be cut and prepared a couple hours earlier, and popped in the fridge.


You can buy really delicious sticky balsamic drizzles in the supermarket for an extra oomph, but equally, just make a quick one like I did below.
