Sweet and salty — the perfect combination for a summer salad. Ripe and juicy peach halves wrapped in thinly sliced prosciutto make this a classic Italian dish. Not only a tasty addition to your repertoire, this salad is an easy way to get some fruit and veggies into your next backyard BBQ menu!

Servings: 2
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 5 mins

Ingredients:

  • 2 peaches
  • 2 slices prosciutto (from the deli)
  • 1 tbsp basil, chopped
  • 4 cups arugula (or your choice of greens)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste

What to do:

  • Preheat grill to medium high heat.
  • Cut peaches in half and remove pits. Chop basil into small pieces.
