Ingredients

For the salad:

  • 2 peaches, pit removed and sliced in half
  • 1 Teaspoon olive oil, preferably California Olive Ranch Arbequina Olive Oil
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 4 Cups fresh arugula
  • 1/4 Cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 Cup sliced almonds
  • 2–3 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, torn into pieces

For the dressing:

  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1/2 shallot, finely minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 Teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 Teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil, preferably California Olive Ranch Arbequina Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste

Directions

For the salad:

Heat an indoor or outdoor grill to medium high heat.

Brush peach halves with olive oil and place on the grill, flat side down for 1–2 minutes and then rotate 90 degrees to continue to cook for another 1–2 minutes. Once grill marks are present, use a pair of tongs and remove the peaches to a cutting board and let cool. After the peaches have cooled, slice each half into 3–4 wedges.

Cut avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit and discard. Remove the skin from the avocado and place the avocado flesh onto a cutting board. Cut each half of the avocado into six strips.

Place arugula in a large serving bowl and top with grilled peach wedges, sliced avocado, crumbled feta cheese, and sliced almonds.

For the dressing:

Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together until evenly combined.

Dress the salad with 1/2 of the vinaigrette and taste. Add more vinaigrette if needed otherwise reserve the remaining vinaigrette for a later use.

Garnish salad with thinly sliced pieces of prosciutto and serve immediately.
