Method

 
Spray a griddle pan with non-stick cooking spray. Fry the fruit in the pan for 2 minutes on high each side until they start to soften, and show decorative black lines.

Place the greens, tomatoes and spring onions on a serving platter or on four plates. Add cucumber and sweet pepper, if desired.

Place the peaches or nectarines on top. Add freshly ground black pepper.

In a serving jug, make the vinaigrette by mixing the lemon juice, garlic, vinegar, oil, sugar (or peach syrup), fresh herbs, celery, salt and water.

Serve the salad with the vinaigrette on the side as one of the vegetables of a meal.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
