  • 100ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 1½ tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, half crushed, half reserved
  • 4 large peaches, quartered
  • 2 cured chorizos (about 250g in total), halved lengthways
  • ½ baguette, slices diagonally
  • 1 bunch large-leaf rocket, trimmed
  • 1 large (about 125g in total) mozzarella ball, torn
  • ¼ cup (25g) walnuts, toasted, chopped
  • 1 cup basil leaves


  1. Preheat the barbecue or a grill pan to medium-high heat.
  2. To make a dressing, combine ¼ cup (60ml) oil, vinegar, mustard and crushed garlic in a screwtop jar, season, secure with lid and shake to combine. Set aside
  3. Brush peaches, chorizo and baguette slices with remaining oil. Grill peaches and chorizo cut-side down for 3 minutes or until charred. Turn and cook for 2 minutes or until charred. Set aside on a plate and loosely cover with foil to keep warm. Grill bread a minute each side, then rub one side of each with cut side of reserved garlic.
  4. Cut chorizo pieces into quarters. Place rocket in a large serving bowl with mozzarella, top with chorizo and peaches, scatter with walnuts and basil, drizzle with half the dressing (remaining will keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks) and serve with grilled baguette.
