Apricot and prosciutto salad with cabernet sauvignon vinegar dressing

all details

Apricots belong to the rose family and are closely related to almonds, plums, peaches and cherries. The many varieties differ in size, colour, flavour and skin colour, which can be pale yellow to brilliant orange with a deep pink flush. However, they are not usually labelled in shops by variety.
