I’m going to let you in on one of the best-kept secrets of gourmet cooking: it’s mostly about presentation (along with having a well-stocked pantry). If a dish is presented nicely, your guests are likely to be extra-impressed, even if all you’re serving is simple fare like this salad.
The key is to use very fresh, high-quality ingredients. Get your prosciutto at a deli so you can buy only what you need (a great way to save money), pick the most perfect peach you can find and use good vrigin olive oil. With a little careful shopping and some artful plating, you can turn a few ingredients into a summery, bistro-worthy starter.
