Peach & Prosciutto Salad

Hello my loves!

First, thank you SO much for being super patient and understanding while I was studying & taking the CA Bar Exam.  I'm so excited to be back and can't wait to share with you all the exciting things I have planned!  I am so grateful for your continued support.

I'm finally enjoying summer and all the delicious fruits that are in season.  Peaches are a definite favorite. They are so sweet and flavorful, and can also be worked into a savory recipe like this salad, which is inspired by one I had at Bestia in LA.  Be sure to use the ripest peaches and creamiest mozzarella you can get your hands on :)  The recipe is not meant to be exact, just use whatever ratio suits your fancy.  The amount below serves 2 as a main, with plenty of extra dressing which you can store in the fridge and use for another salad.


2 tbs balsamic vinegar

1 tbs honey

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

salt & fresh ground pepper

2 ripe peaches

8 slices prosciutto 

1 oz (or more) fresh mozzarella or burrata cheese

mixed greens, arugula, or similar

  1. Halve the peaches and remove the pit.  Brush with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt. Grill them in a pan, face down, until golden brown.  Flip over and grill skin side down for another 2-3 minutes.  Remove from the pan, let cool, and slice.
  2. While waiting for the peaches to grill, mix up the vinaigrette by whisking together the olive oil, balsamic, and honey until emulsified.  Add some fresh cracked pepper.
  3. Arrange the greens on a platter.  Tear up the mozzarella ball into little pieces and scatter it throughout the salad.
  4. Tear the prosciutto into small pieces and incorporate it into the salad.  Add as much or as little as you like!
  5. Finally, add the sliced peaches, and drizzle with the vinaigrette.
