The farmer's markets are featuring their early season peaches and they are delicious... ripe, sweet and juicy, unlike the peaches you buy in the grocery store.
This is a simple salad to put together.
1/3 c. OLIVE OIL
1/4 c. fresh LIME JUICE
3 Tbsp. SHALLOTS, minced
1 1/2 Tbsp. HONEY
1/2 tsp. PEPPER
1/4 tsp. SALT
2 c. CURLY LEAF LETTUCE (or salad greens of your choice)
2 ripe PEACHES, peeled and sliced
8 thin slices PROSCIUTTO
1 ounce GOAT CHEESE
Combine oil, lime juice, shallots, honey, pepper and salt in a jar. Cover tightly and shake to blend.
Let stand 1 hour for flavors to blend.
Toss salad greens with some of the dressing and arrange lettuce, peach slices and prosciutto on individual plates.
Crumble cheese over salads.
