Prosciutto & Peach Salad

I've had some succulent peaches, ripe for the eating, ready to jump off my shelves this week. So, I decided to incorporate them into a fresh summer salad, riffing off of a recent Cooking Light recipe.
Prosciutto & Peach Salad

Dressing: (enough for 4 servings)

2 - 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tspns honey
2 tbsp olive oil
Pinch salt and pepper
1 tbsp finely minced fresh mint


Baby lettuce of choice
Fresh slices of ripe peach
Sunflower seeds

Combine dressing ingredients and toss w/lettuce and peaches (amounts depend on how many salads you want and if you're making this as an accompaniment or main course). Place lettuce and peaches in individual serving dishes. Top w/desired amount of prosciutto, feta and sunflower seeds. Serve and enjoy!

I made this salad last night and then again for lunch today. It was delicious both times! I used bacon instead of prosciutto because that was what I had in the fridge, and we topped our salad with tandoori masala thinly sliced chicken. I can't believe it but all of those flavors worked together. I plan to make the tequila lime chicken soon too. Thanks for the great recipes!

That sounds fantastic, CFM! The Tequila Lime chicken will make your mouth water- hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
