Recipe Box, Stuffed Peach Salad with Balsamic Drizzle


warm peach salad

This salad looks fancy schmancy but is a snap to make


Peel fresh ripe peaches [drop in boiling water for 1 minute for easing peeling]  and cut in half.  Remove pits


Fill cavities with chopped pecans, dot with butter, about 1/4 of a pat, and sprinkle with brown sugar


That might sound a little decadent, but you really can’t fit much in there!


Top with a prosciutto blanket, you know, a thin slice~


Place peaches on a foil lined baking sheet and pop in the oven at 400 for about 10-15 minutes, until hot and prosciutto has crisped.  You could also cook these on the grill on a piece of foil.  Cooking time will depend on grill temperature, just watch carefully until desired doneness
