Peach and feta salad is a light and tasty summer dish, just what you need for a different lunch break, especially on the hottest days. In its simplicity, the peach salad can also be a refined dish, to show off perhaps as an appetizer for a special occasion. The sweet and slightly acidic flavor of the peach goes perfectly with the sapid one of the feta cheese; adding rocket also gives it a slightly spicy flavor. To complete this delicious salad there are the crunchy note of sesame seeds and the aromatic one of balsamic vinegar. Peach and feta salad is ready in a few simple steps and will satisfy your palate without making you go overboard with calories.

How to prepare the peach and feta salad
Puoi trovare la versione italiana di questa ricetta qui!
To prepare the peach and feta salad I used nectarines, which have a fairly compact flesh and a smooth and tasty skin. In this case, therefore, you can leave them with the peel. Wash them, dry them and cut them in half. Remove the stone, then cut them into thin slices
Wash and dry the rocket, break it up with your hands and put it in a large salad bowl. Add the peaches and season with a pinch of salt and 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
In a non-stick pan, briefly toast the sesame seeds: about a minute on medium heat is enough, always checking them because they are easy to burn.
Tips and variations
You can also add nuts to the peach salad: walnuts or pecans are fine, but so are pine nuts. As an alternative to sesame you can use other oilseeds, such as sunflower seeds.
