Ingredients
 
 

  • 2 peaches
  • 16 green leaves - arugula, lamb’s lettuce, etc.
  • 8 slices prosciutto di Parma

Balsamic Vinaigrette:

  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • cup balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp. fine sea salt
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil

Instructions
 

  • Cut each peach into 8 wedges; set aside.
  • Heat a grill to medium heat and grill each wedge for just one minute or two for larger peaches (until slightly tender).
  • Cut each slice of prosciutto in half, lengthwise, so you now have 16 narrower slices.
  • Place a green leaf and peach slice on top of a prosciutto slice. Wrap each wedge with the prosciutto.
  • Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the honey, balsamic vinegar, mustard, and salt. Add the oil and whisk thoroughly to combine. Continue whisking until the dressing is fully emulsified. Drizzle the dressing over the prosciutto wedges when ready to eat.
