In case you missed it...August is National Peach Month, and to celebrate I made this fabulous Grilled Peach Salad.
That's right...I waited till the very end of August to share this with you, but don't worry you can still get your hands on some fresh peaches!
So what are you waiting for? Grill those babies up, and put them together in this salad of fresh arugula, thinly sliced prosciutto, and crumbled goat cheese. Lightly toss with a vinaigrette sweetened with a little honey, and you'll be savoring the last days of August in no time!
Makes 2 large servings or 4 side servings
3 peaches, pitted and cut into wedges
1 bag arugula
3 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, sliced into thin strips
5 ounces crumbled goat cheese
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/8 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
In a large bowl combine olive oil, white wine vinegar, and honey, and whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste and adjust the amount of olive oil to get the right consistency for a dressing. Set aside
Prepare an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to high heat. Coat peach wedges lightly with cooking spray and place on prepared grill. Grill about 30 seconds on each side, or until grill marks appear but peaches are still firm. Remove from the grill and set aside.
Add arugula to the bowl with the dressing and toss gently to coat. Arrange arugula mixture onto salad plates. Top with peach wedges and prosciutto. Sprinkle with goat cheese.
