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!
