What’s one of our favorite summer tricks? Grilled fruit. From nectarines to pineapple, a light char on the grill accentuates their natural sweetness for a delicious summer treat.

 

Try this prosciutto and arugula salad with grilled peaches. It’s a seasonal twist on the classic melon and prosciutto pairing, with grilled peaches in place of cantaloupe.

 

  • 4 ripe peaches, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 8 cups baby arugula
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 8 slices prosciutto, torn in half
  • ½ cup fresh mozzarella, torn
  • Flake sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

 

  1. Preheat a grill.
  2. Lay the peaches cut-side up on a baking sheet and brush them with olive oil. When the grill is hot, transfer the fruit, cut-side up, to the grill and cook until the fruit begins to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the peaches and cook the exposed flesh until char-marked. Remove from the heat and let sit until cool enough to handle.
  3. Toss the arugula in a bowl with a generous drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice. Add the torn prosciutto and mozzarella, toss gently, season as needed and serve.
