Grilled Peach, Burrata, & Prosciutto Salad

This summery salad will have you dreaming of an Italian vacation

My friend’s family owns and operates an amazing farm that sells fruit at the farmer’s markets in L.A. and Santa Barbara. I previously featured their apples here, but their summer stone fruits are also incredible. She dropped off a ton of peaches and plums for us last week and I put them to work in breakfasts, desserts, and this salad, which is based off something I had at Gjelina last summer. The peaches caramelize and intensify on the grill and are a great pairing with the salty prosciutto, peppery arugula, and creamy cheese. It's a vibrant taste of summer that's great for sharing as an appetizer or side dish, or on its own as a light meal.
