Sweet, sour and salty summer salad

This simple peach, pancetta and grilled onion salad is the perfect balance of sweet, sour and salty. Make this salad when peaches are sweet and juicy in the height of the season. Roasted onions give it depth and everything is always better with pancetta. At least as far a my family is concerned.
