I'm really into making salads right now...it's light, refreshing and nice to eat outside on the back deck. I saw this recipe for grilled peach and proscuitto salad and knew I had to make it stat!
We used white peaches instead of yellow, but they were just as delicious. And the arugula was the perfect spicy base to pull the salad together.
2 ripe yellow peaches, pitted and cut into 12 slices
12 thin slices of prosciutto
6 cups baby arugula
2 tablespoons slivered almonds
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper
Preheat a grill to medium heat.
Wrap each peach slice with a thin slice of prosciutto.
Grill the peaches over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side, until the prosciutto is crisp and peaches are slightly tender.
Toss the arugula with the almonds, olive oil, vinegar, and a pinch of sea salt and cracked pepper.
Serve the grilled peaches over the dressed arugula.
It's such a simple, easy dinner, but it's full of flavor! We'll make this again before the summer is over!
