Peach & Arugula Salad

Now that the warmer weather is here to stay (hopefully!), I am thrilled that there is an abundance of fresh fruit at our local farmer's market. Peaches are a particular favorite of mine, and are the star of this yummy salad that T and I made a few months ago for our New Year's Southern brunch. This salad is a snap to throw together, and the perfect side dish for a grilled dinner out on the patio. The combination of the peaches, gorgonzola, and prosciutto is incredibly flavorful!

Peach & Arugula Salad

* 2 teaspoons honey
* 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
* 2 ounces baby arugula
* 1 slice prosciutto, diced
* 2 peaches, chopped
* 1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola
* Salt and pepper 

* Whisk the lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and honey in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add the arugula, and toss to combine.

* Top the greens with the peaches, and sprinkle the gorgonzola and prosciutto on top.
