Mixed Leaf Salad with Mozzarella, Mint, Peach and Prosciutto

Jamie Oliver's simple yet delicious recipe for a Mixed Leaf Salad with Mozzarella, Peach and Prosciutto is full of irresistible Italian flavours, with the fresh mint and juicy peach giving it a real taste of summer.


Try to get hold of buffalo mozzarella. I like to crumble a little bit of dried chilli over my mozzarella, but I’m a chilli freak and you may not be, so you don’t have to! And use any mixed leaves you fancy.

1 ripe peach
1 ball mozzarella, preferably buffalo mozzarella
A couple of slices prosciutto
Mixed leaves of your choice
Dried chilli flakes (optional)
For the dressing:
2 tbsp lemon juice
5 tbsp olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


To make the dressing:

Mix the ingredients together until combined and set aside. 

To assemble the salad: 

Pinch the skin of the peach and peel from the bottom to the top then quarter them. Rip the mozzarella into small pieces and place on a plate with the peaches. Lightly season. Lay a couple of slices of prosciutto over the top. Dress your mixed salad leaves and torn-up mint with a little of the olive oil and lemon juice dressing. Throw the leaves on top of the plate.
