When it comes to summer, it is hard not to find someone enjoying a sweet, juicy peach. Whether sweet or savory, there are so many ways to enjoy the fruit of the summer. In our house we enjoy it in many ways from the classics like Auntie B’s peach cobbler and homemade peach ice cream, to peach salsas and salads with peaches and crumbled blue cheese. This summer there was no shortage of peach sangria which my sister is the master at creating and yesterday we posted a grilled peach recipe with Bellisari’s Balsamic Shallot and Black Garlic Spread. The best part yet is that one cup of sliced peach, weighing 154 grams (g) contains: 60 calories 1.4 g of protein, not only is it tasty and versatile, it is a healthy option. This week we enjoyed the Peach and Prosciutto Salad with Shaved Parmesan and Spicy Fig Dressing. Recipe below.
3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 tablespoons of Bellisari’s Blistered Jalapeño & Fig Spread
1 shallot finely chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 ripe but firm peaches, cut into wedges
1/4 c. roasted pistachios chopped
4 cups mixed baby greens
4 to 6 slices prosciutto, sliced paper thin
approximately 1/4 cup Parmesan, shaved
Whisk together lemon juice, oil, shallots, and Bellisari’s Blistered Jalapeño & Fig Spread in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add peaches and toss to coat. Let sit at least 15 minutes and up to 1 hour.
Place the mixed baby greens in each bowl and add the prosciutto and top each serving with the peaches and spicy fig dressing. Garnish with pistachios and enjoy!
