To make thyme dressing, mix all ingredients together and taste for seasoning.
To make chilli smash, pound the garlic and red chillies in a mortar and pestle with a good
pinch of salt until it forms a paste. Drizzle in olive oil whilst stirring to make a slurry.
For the raddichio that has been cut into wedges, blanch in a pot of water until it has just
wilted, pat dry and coat with olive oil and season with sea salt. Heat a grill plate and
char-grill the raddichio until it is singed, then dress with a little crushed garlic, red wine vinegar,
sea salt, pepper and olive oil.
For the day old torn bread, heat a fry pan and toss the bread with olive oil until it becomes
golden and crisp, then season with salt.
To assemble the salad, arrange the grilled raddichio on a large platter, tear the peaches
and place them around the platter. Use the fresh herbs, witlof, rocket, red onion and the
uncooked raddichio to make a salad around the peaches, then nestle slices of prosciutto
amongst the salad.
Spoon generous dollops of goats curd over the top, scatter with crunchy bread, dress with
the thyme dressing and finish by spooning over chilli smash and chopped pistachios.
Always finish with a drizzle of good olive oil and some cracked pepper.
