Goat's Cheese & Aleppo Pepper Salad

Tangy cheese, yummy grilled peaches and the all-so-important heat of Aleppo. If we had to choose one salad to eat for the rest of our lives, it would be this one.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1⁄2 red onion thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 peaches, quartered, stone removed
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp thyme leaves, picked
  • Handful of rocket leaves
  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp toasted walnuts
  • 150g fresh goat’s cheese,
  • roughly chopped
  • 2 tsp Aleppo pepper

Dressing

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1⁄2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1⁄2 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1 small clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley

METHOD

  1. Place the sliced red onion in a bowl of iced water.
  2. Heat a frying pan until smoking hot and add a splash of vegetable oil, followed by the peaches. Cook until caramelised on all sides.
  3. Add the butter and thyme leaves, and let the peaches cook for a further 2-3 minutes in the foaming butter, basting them as they cook.
  4. Remove onto a plate, pour the butter on top and set aside.
  5. To make the dressing, whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  6. To serve, mix the rocket, peaches, iced onion, mint, walnuts and goats’ cheese in a bowl, and arrange on a platter.
