mozzarella, peach and parma ham salad

If Buddhism teaches us anything, it's that there is balance in everything, a cosmic ying-yang at work that keeps the world a-turning. In South West London this manifests itself in the mother of all hangovers after yesterday's street party shenanigans, and a craving for food that isn't predominantly burger-based.

Luckily we don't have to rack our brains too much for inspiration as not only do Sainsbury's have offers on ripe peaches, they're also doing deals on mozzarella, parma ham and rosé. Well, going cold turkey can be dangerous.

It's one of our favourite salads; it's a cinch to put together, it's packed with bold flavours and it's remarkably satisfying.

Clearly we had rosé, but if you wanted to find something to match rather than drinking whatever you had in the fridge/on offer, I reckon you wouldn't go too far wrong with a New World-style Viognier. The ripe peaches are quite dominant, and the dressing is quite lemony and acidic, which is a pretty accurate description of this classic Rhone grape.
