Roasted Nectarine Salad with Feta & Mint

By Rick Stein

Roasted Nectarine Salad with Feta & Mint
Salty cheese, fruit and mint with a bit of honey in there too is the sort of salad that makes me long to be back in Sydney.

Serves: 4 as a side or 2 as light supper



3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp runny honey
6 nectarines, stoned and halved
2 red onions, cut into wedges
80g pea shoots or lamb’s lettuce
150g feta, cubed or crumbled
A few mint sprigs, leaves only, roughly torn
30g almonds, roughly chopped Vinaigrette
1 tbsp red wine vinegar 2 tsp runny honey
3 tbsp olive oil
Salt and black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C.
  2. Mix the olive oil and honey in a roasting tin, add the nectarines and red onions, then toss to coat. Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes until tender, then leave to cool to room temperature. Mix the vinaigrette ingredients in a jug and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Scatter the pea shoots or lamb’s lettuce over a serving dish and arrange the red onions and nectarines on top. Pour over any roasting juices. Add the feta, scatter over the mint and almonds, then dress with the vinaigrette at the table.
