Grilled Peach, Arugula, and Fresh Mozzarella Salad

Serves 4

This easy salad shows off the best of fresh summer ingredients. Take it over the top by substituting burrata for the mozzarella.


  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing peaches
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 3 firm, but ripe, peaches, halved and pitted
  • 5 cups baby arugula
  • 4 ounces prosciutto, torn into pieces
  • 16 ounces fresh-stretched mozzarella or burrata
  • 1/3 cup almonds, toasted, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh chives


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings to preference. Set aside.
  2. Preheat grill to medium. Brush peach halves on both sides with olive oil. Grill, turning once, until grill marks develop, about 5 minutes total.
  3. Place arugula and prosciutto in bowl with vinaigrette. Toss to coat. Transfer to serving platter.
  4. Slice grilled peach halves into thirds and add to salad. Tear fresh mozzarella or burrata into bite-size chunks. Arrange cheese on salad. Sprinkle salad with almonds, chives, salt and pepper.
