Prosciutto and Fresh Peaches with Mozzarella di Bufala

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.

  • Ingredients
  • 6 thin slices prosciutto $3
  • 1ripe peach, sliced $1
  • 4 oz. mozzarella di bufala (fresh mozzarella), sliced into medallions *$4 for 8 oz.*S
  • extra virgin olive oil Pantry
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry
Total Cost of Ingredients $8

Directions

Arrange prosciutto on 2 salad plates. Top with peach slices and mozzarella medallions. Drizzle with olive oil to taste and top with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

Serves 2.

Hi there,

I just wanted to take a minute to convey how absolutely perfect your website is. I am an avid cook, but have a demanding 9-5, so am often exhausted by the time I get home. I looove making food look good, and having it taste incredible-so this is right on the money (or lack of, lol). So many clever and unique recipes-your blog is certainly a keeper. Keep doing what you do, you have definitely inspired me beyond words. Thank you!
