Pickled Peach Salad with Ham and Cheese

>>>Pickled Peach Salad with Ham and Cheese
Ham, cheese and pickles are a well trodden path for a salad this pickled peach in the salad really sets itself apart from the rest!

If adventures in North African/Persian food defined my winter my summer has been all about pickles and salads and this pickled peach salad with ham and cheese follows on from the likes of my Panzanella and Thai Beef Salad in this seasons culinary ramblings.  For some strange reason I find pickling fruit does not happen very often, although pickled cherries are very popular here and it would seem in my travels this summer that pickled green strawberries are gaining more prevalence but peaches are a little unusual. As with most of my inspirations I can’t remember where I saw the idea for pickled peach the first time but it works and it works really really well and lets face it ham, cheese and pickles are just made to be together, peaches and ham is definitely a classic pairing so whilst it may sound a little out of left field the combinations are all pretty classical.

This peach recipe is also the latest iteration of the ingredient challenge with some fellow food bloggers and as you can see below we have some super looking recipes down there, in fact if you are that way inclined you can go full on all day peach if you are that way inclined, with breakfast, lunch, dinner & dessert all catered for 😀

    With summer around the corner here in Australia, this would be the perfect dish to make. I would be grilling the ciabatta on the bbq.
