Grilled Peach & Prosciutto Salad

Our Grilled Peach & Prosciutto Salad is a real overachiever: it’s light and fresh, thanks to fresh arugula and sweet peaches, but it’s sturdy and filling, too, courtesy of the creamy avocado. The flavors are sophisticated — there’s the sweet-smoky chiaroscuro of the peaches, the bright pop of the basil, the peppery arugula and the salty prosciutto. It’s a salad with depth, texture and bold flavor in every bite and it’s on the table in just 10 minutes.

4 servings
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

4 large peaches
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
5 slices prosciutto
2 cups arugula
1 avocado, sliced
½ cantaloupe (about 12 ounces), diced
½ cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons aged balsamic vinegar

Directions

  1. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high.
  2. Slice the peaches in half, remove the pits, then slice them in half again to quarter. Lightly brush the cut sides of the peaches with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  3. Place the peaches cut side down on the grill and cook, uncovered, until nice grill marks have formed, about 3 minutes per side. 
  4. Lay the prosciutto slices on the hot grill or grill pan and cook until crispy, 1 to 2 minutes per side. 
  5. To assemble the salad: In a large serving bowl, combine the grilled peaches, arugula, avocado, cantaloupe and basil. Drizzle the aged balsamic vinegar and remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil on top. Toss to combine. 
  6. Crumble the crispy prosciutto on top of the salad and serve immediately.
