Curly leaves and white nectarines with feta vinaigrette

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 4 people

We love the mustardy tang of green elk in this mix of curly leaves. Ask your greengrocer to look out for it when they do their market run if they don't have it in stock. Otherwise, use another lettuce with thin, curly leaves.

  • 3 white nectarines, cut into wedges
  • 50 gm mixed curly leaves, such as green elk, frisée and wild rocket
  • ¼ cup finely chopped chives
  •  
  • Feta vinaigrette
  • 100 gm creamy Greek feta, such as Dodoni, crumbled
  • 80 ml (1/3 cup) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2½ tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp walnut oil
  • 2 tsp mild honey, such as beechwood honeydew honey
01   For feta vinaigrette, whisk ingredients together in a bowl, season well and set aside.
02   Place nectarine wedges on a plate. Combine leaves in a bowl, drizzle with a little dressing, then scatter the nectarines over. Scatter with chives, drizzle with extra dressing, season to taste and serve.
