Method

  1. Brush the peaches with oil and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Place in a pan cut-side down, and grill over high heat, cook until lightly charred, allow approx 1 to 2 minutes. Then flip the peaches and cook 1 minute more. Then set aside and let cool.
  3. In a bowl, whisk the lemon juice with the 1/4 cup of oil and season with salt and pepper, then toss in the rocket leaves. Transfer the rocket to a platter and arrange the peaches on top with the mozeralla cheese, ham and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Serve.
