Whether it’s for a wholesome meal, a side dish for a barbecue or for a picnic, this speedy salad is one of our summer favourites. The nectarines give the salad a fresh and fruity flavour, and the combination of the sweet fruit, the tartness of the roasted lemons and the pleasant sharpness of the rocket go perfectly with each other.
