Every week I try to cook something that makes it seem like I have my life together, so I knew I had to try a prosciutto-wrapped peach and goat cheese salad. Since I will eat or make anything that combines salty and sweet, I couldn't wait.
It didn't take long, only about 15 minutes to prepare. While the peaches/prosciutto are "grilling" (I don't have a grill so I just used a pan, but ideally this would be on a grill) you can assemble the spinach/arugula salad mix and put on whatever toppings you'd like. I used goat cheese here, and I also recommend avocado.
As for the dressing, I usually try and make my own vinaigrettes. For this one I drizzled balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and honey over everything. I highly recommend homemade dressing, but if that's not your thing, store-bought balsamic vinaigrette also works well.
Prosciutto-Wrapped Peach & Goat Cheese Salad
- Prep Time:10 mins
- Cook Time:15 mins
- Total Time:25 mins
- 1/2 sliced peach
- 2 slice prosciutto
- Goat cheese
- Arugula & spinach salad mix
- Balsamic vinegar
- Olive oil
- Salt & pepper
Take a slice of prosciutto and rip it in half lengthwise. Roll the prosciutto around a peach slice. Do this for as many slices as you want.
#SpoonTip: To cut back on calories/fat/sodium, use only one slice of prosciutto, ripped into 4 pieces. Prosciutto is flavorful enough that less gives the same flavor.
Heat a pan over medium heat with olive oil. Cook the prosciutto-wrapped peaches until brown on each side.
Drizzle olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and honey onto the salad greens.
Top with prosciutto-wrapped peaches, goat cheese if desired, and a touch of salt and pepper. Enjoy!
The best thing about salads is that they can be whatever you want them to be and they don't take long to make. Keep exploring ways to make your salads less bland and more delicious!
