Summer Salad With Peaches


It’s been a bit too hot outside to turn the oven on, so I’ve been making a lot of salads lately. In the summer I love adding fresh fruits to my salads – there’s something so good about mixing sweet fruits with creamy or salty cheese!

Ingredients: (serves 1)
1 peach, pitted and sliced
1 tomato, sliced
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
10 fresh green beans, blanched
Ricotta salata
Fresh basil leaves, chopped
2 cups fresh spinach
4 prosciutto slices, torn
Balsamic vinegar
Olive oil
Fresh cracked pepper

Place the onions in a bowl with some balsamic vinegar and let sit for 10 mins. In the meantime, blanch the green beans and set aside. In a bowl mix together the spinach, chopped basil, peaches and tomato. Top with the balsamic onions, ricotta salata, and fresh cracked pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and any leftover balsamic from the onions.
