Nectarine Chicken and Prosciutto Salad

 Filling, refreshing salad with a light Honey Dressing

As with most kind of dishes, I have my top favorites. Breakfast, pasta, red meat and so on, I always have that one or two recipes I always know would be a favorite, not only for me but which my family loves as well.

This Nectarine Chicken and Prosciutto Salad is one of them. I put this one straight in the filling, not too rich, light dinner, lunch group and can not tell you how many times I have made it to date.

Nectarines are of course a type of peach, very popular in South-Africa {although I grew up knowing it by the Afrikaans name - Kaalgat Perskes, which might be rude to translate, verbatim, into English !}

My favorite part of this filling salad ??  Absolutely everything ! The ingredients, fruity, meaty, cheesy and of course my much-loved-leafy-herb .. rocket. Btw, I can eat a whole packet of rocket by itself and try to always have some on hand. Do you have a favorite kind of leafy herb, which is just always/usually in your fridge?
