Throwback Thursday, Summer Peach Salad

Like tomatoes and corn, fresh peaches really shine

in the Summer months

warm peach salad

This roasted peach salad is a treat for lunch or a light dinner

Peaches, prosciutto, brown sugar, balsamic glaze,

pecans, butter and salad greens


Do you know the quick and easy way to peel peaches?

Drop them in boiling water for 1 minute,

then the peel pretty much just slides off

Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits


Fill cavities with chopped pecans,

dot with butter, and sprinkle with brown sugar


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

If you want to keep it light, you can skip the filling

Put the peaches on a foil lined pan

and top with a slice of prosciutto, tucking ends under


Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 10-15 minutes,

until hot and prosciutto gets crisp


Serve on a bed of greens,

such as fresh spinach and romaine lettuce

and drizzle with balsamic glaze

peach, pecan and prosciutto salad

I tossed my greens with a touch of Orange Marmalade Vinaigrette

before adding peaches

    Being from the PEACH STATE, I do love a good peach recipe! These all look good, so will give one or two a whirl.
    Sorry I have been out of touch a bit, but all is well after a huge tree fell in my back yard, the one next to it had to be taken down; while they were here removing that one, a Mimosa tree fell in the front yard, across the power lines. After that was taken care of my brakes were in need of repair! All is good now so a great recipe seems like just the ticket.

    • Well hello Georgia Gal! So sorry about your trees and brakes, it’s rough when everything hits at the same time. I hope now you can relax and enjoy summer {except for all the crazy weather we’ve been having in the South!} We have great peaches in Bama too, enjoy them while we can!

  9. Mmmmmmm! LOVE peaches! Love prosciutto too, so WIN!! Thanks – I’ll be trying this soon!

  10. What a fun summery combination! I can’t wait to add this salad to my meal rotation! Thank you!

    I grew up at the GA/TN boundary line and so I appreciate a good peach. They can be so disappointing outside of the South. Your recipe is so creative and sounds delicious!

  12. Mary says:

  14. Kim says:
