Peaches. There’s something so satisfying about biting into the sweet, juicy flesh that quenches the thirst for a cool and refreshing treat in the summertime.

Even the perfectly round shape, bright peachy red and fuzzy exterior gives it a heavenly appeal.

This summer salad recipe pairs white peaches with prosciutto and fresh mozzarella tossed in a tangy sweet vinaigrette. It’s refreshing, light, and the salty prosciutto paired with the cool, mild mozzarella and sweet peaches is a combination to die for. You can also substitute the mozzarella with Ricotta Salata (fresh ricotta) or Feta cheese, and add some sliced or slivered almonds for crunch if you like. Serve this salad with some crusty bread and a glass of white wine – perfect for a lunch or dinner side salad with an Italian dish.

White Peach, Prosciutto & Mozzarella Salad

Yield: 4 servings

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp honey

  • 3-4 slices prosciutto, sliced thin and torn into pieces
  • 3 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, shredded into pieces

Instructions

  1. Combine lemon juice, honey, vinegar, salt and pepper, stirring with a whisk. Gradually drizzle in olive oil, stirring constantly, until vinaigrette is mixed thoroughly and doesn’t separate.

    1. Hey Jason,
      Yes I have grilled peaches – we did this at a fun BBQ this summer and topped them off with a citrus balsamic and french vanilla ice cream. AMAZING! Hope all is well with East Village Eats and your food writing pursuits!
