This is a sweet and savory panini, fresh and light for any occasion.

Ingredients

  • 4 slices of Italian bread (e.g., filone, ciabatta)
  • 2 slices prosciutto
  • 1 ripe peach, pitted and sliced
  • 4 Ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 4 fresh basil leaves
  • olive oil, for brushing

Directions

Preheat the panini grill to medium-high heat.

For each sandwich: Lay a slice of prosciutto onto the bottom half of bread. Top with peach slices, fresh mozzarella, and basil leaves. Close the sandwich with the other half of bread. Brush a little olive oil on top, if desired.

Grill for 4 to 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted. Cut in half, serve immediately, and enjoy!

Peach Shopping Tip

Peach Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
