Rocket and Nectarine Salad

July 13, 2005 by Lisa

A gorgeous summer salad that’s perfect with barbequed meats and suchlike. This one is adapted from another recipe found online because I seem to be well-placed for rather mature rocket in my garden. The nectarines set off the taste really well.


  • 3 tbsp Rasberry vinegar
  • 1 tsp coarse grain or dijon mustard
  • 5 tbsp good quality olive oil
  • sugar, salt and pepper to taste

Mix together well and pour over 2 or 3 sliced ripe nectarines and a few big handfuls of rocket leaves. I added a handful or coriander leaves once as well, which was a nice variation. Use some milder leaves as well if the rocket is too strong. The original recipe also called for toasted walnuts, but I reckon pecans or cashews would be nicer.

    Linked, it a more reasonable time this week! :) Your leuttce does look wonderful, and even makes me wish I had some, even though I too usually pass up the leuttce. I have yet to see carrots that big around here too, I’m a little jealous. Last week we put some kale into a pasta in place of spinach. First time I had done that, but I’d definitely do it again.
