peach & arugula summer salad

IMG_4926

last week, when my friends were visiting i made this delicious salad. it was so good, i made it again for myself. peaches are everywhere and so incredibly tasty. i am not a huge fan of tart things, but these are perfect. i like to eat them with cottage cheese for breakfast or dessert ! the salad was a hit with my friends and it is more than easy to make after you make that trip to the grocery store!  simply peaches, arugula, prosciutto, and manchego. i bought a case of leinenkugel’s summer shandy the other day too. if you have never had this beer, it is so perfect for a summer afternoon. it is light and refreshing, and i kind of want one right now.

i added some fresh raspberries to the beer just for fun! i made a little picnic outside for myself. taking in all this wonderfulness of my surroundings. i’m not sure how much longer i’ve got left here. i have 5 days to make up my mind whether to stay or go. that is a whole other blog post.

peaches – peel the skin and dice them up

arugula– rinse and give the leaves a dressing of olive oil, a bit of balsamic, salt + pepper

prosciutto– cut into small pieces

manchego– shave pieces into the salad with a vegetable peeler

combine all ingredients together. done!

  1. ripe summer peaches are an absolute meal-maker, and with prosciutto sounds so delicious! i never would have thought of dropping raspberries into beer, but now that sounds genius 🙂 summer cannot end.

  2. I love salads that incorporate fruit. I have not had arugula yet but this recipe is changing that! Thanks for sharing the recipe and the photos are great!

  3. It was SO good! Thanks for making it for us. I made it tonight for the family and plan on making it a summer staple in the Pratt house. Love you!

  4. I love that you made a picnic for yourself! My blogs have been about self care this week and that’s a great example of treating yourself well…and now I’m hungry!
