Prosciutto and mozzarella salad with nectarines

One of my favourite summer salads… and so easy to make!
All you need is:

2 good handfuls of rocket salad
4 ripe nectarines, stoned and cut into eight pieces
1 ball of buffalo mozzarella, torn into pieces
4 slices of good Italian ham, be it Parma or San Daniele or even Culatello (although this is considered a salami), torn into pieces
2 tbsp pine nuts, toasted
1 handful of fresh basil leaves

Arrange the rocket on a large plate, add the rest of the ingredients, scatter toasted pine nuts over the plate and lastly drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad.

I like a dark balsamic vinegar dressing with this salad:

5 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp Maldon salt
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp dark balsamic vinegar
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
½ tsp garlic salt
