A refreshing salad for summer, filled with peaches, prosciutto, roasted almonds and blue cheese.
With the recent heat wave here on the East Coast, I’ve been trying to avoid the oven as much as possible. Our 700 square foot apartment is like a sauna as soon as it gets turned on! On these nights, it really limits your dinner options. Refreshing salads are on way I’ve gotten through the heat wave. Ice cream is another option… but definitely less healthy 😉 .
My Peach and Prosciutto Arugula salad is the perfect dinner to make when you don’t want to turn on the oven. It also would make a perfect side for a dinner party- it looks just as great as it tastes! The sweet and salty combination of peaches, prosciutto and blue cheese make for a delicious dish. The inspiration from this salad came from a salad Kate posted earlier this summer.
I’d love some other dinner ideas..What do you like to eat for dinner when it’s too hot to cook?
- 5 cups baby arugula
- 1/3 of a cup sliced almonds
