Grilled Peach Salad

serves four

2 large, not overly ripe peaches
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp sugar
10-ounce bag of arugula
8 thin slices of prosciutto
1 cup crumbled goat cheese
Honey Thyme Vinaigrette
salt and pepper to taste

Cut each peach into 6 wedges. Combine the olive oil, sugar, salt and pepper in a small bowl and toss the wedges to coat. Place on a clean, greased grill over medium-high heat. Do not touch until you see caramelization around the edges, then flip and grill for 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove and cool. Divide the arugula between 4 salad plates and top with peach wedges, prosciutto, then sprinkle the goat cheese on top. Drizzle with Honey Thyme Vinaigrette.

Honey Thyme Vinaigrette
1 small diced shallot
2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
3 Tbsp honey
¼ cup white wine vinegar
2 tsp Dijon mustard
¾ cup olive oil

Mix all ingredients, except the oil, in a blender. On low speed, slowly drizzle in the oil. Blend until well emulsified. Chill until ready to use.

Enjoy!
