    Charred peach and mozzarella salad

    Salty preserved lemons, sweet peaches and creamy mozzarella make a heavenly combination. 

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes

    Serves: 2


    2 black garlic cloves
    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    ½ essential lemon, juice
    1 preserved lemon, pulp discarded, finely sliced
    2 peaches, cut into thick wedges
    2 slices crusty white bread or sourdough (about 100g)
    50g rocket
    125g essential mozzarella (or burrata), torn into bite-sized pieces
    1 tsp pul biber


    1. In a large bowl, mash the black garlic with 1½ tbsp oil, then stir in the lemon juice and preserved lemon. Season and set aside.

    2. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat. Brush the peaches with the remaining ½ tbsp oil, then cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until tender and charred; set aside. Griddle the bread slices on both sides for 1-2 minutes until crisp, then tear into bite-sized chunks.

    3. Add the bread and rocket to the bowl of dressing; toss to combine. Divide the salad between 2 plates, layering in the peach wedges and mozzarella (or burrata) as you do. Sprinkle over the pul biber and serve immediately.
