last week, when my friends were visiting i made this delicious salad. it was so good, i made it again for myself. peaches are everywhere and so incredibly tasty. i am not a huge fan of tart things, but these are perfect. i like to eat them with cottage cheese for breakfast or dessert ! the salad was a hit with my friends and it is more than easy to make after you make that trip to the grocery store! simply peaches, arugula, prosciutto, and manchego. i bought a case of leinenkugel’s summer shandy the other day too. if you have never had this beer, it is so perfect for a summer afternoon. it is light and refreshing, and i kind of want one right now.
i added some fresh raspberries to the beer just for fun! i made a little picnic outside for myself. taking in all this wonderfulness of my surroundings. i’m not sure how much longer i’ve got left here. i have 5 days to make up my mind whether to stay or go. that is a whole other blog post.
peaches – peel the skin and dice them up
arugula– rinse and give the leaves a dressing of olive oil, a bit of balsamic, salt + pepper
prosciutto– cut into small pieces
manchego– shave pieces into the salad with a vegetable peeler
combine all ingredients together. done!
