Peach and Prosciutto Salad

Summer anyone??? Versions of this salad are cropping up at so many restaurants where I’ve dined.

It’s my new favorite summer salad!  It’s a meal in itself, but you can add some soup or some fresh fruit and crusty bread if you like. The combination of the tangy arugula, sweet peaches, strong blue cheese and salty prosciutto = TO DIE FOR! And a bonus – it gets no easier than this recipe. Serves 2.
