Ingredients
  • 6 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp clear honey
  • 2 large, ripe peaches, halved and stoned
  • 15g butter, melted
  • 125g pack light mozzarella, drained and cut into 4
  • 2 slices Chosen by you Prosciutto, cut into halves
  • Sprigs of basil, to garnish
Method
  • For the dressing, simmer the vinegar and honey in a pan for 3-4 minutes until thick and syrupy. Taste - if it's still a little vinegary, simmer for 1-2 minutes more.

  • Lay the peach halves face down on a baking sheet. Brush with butter and cook under a preheated grill for 3-4 minutes. Turn over, brush with butter and cook for 2-3 minutes more.

  • Put 2 peach halves on each plate. Top each half with one slice of mozzarella and half a slice of prosciutto, then sprinkle on ground black pepper. Drizzle with the warm dressing and garnish with the basil sprigs.
