For the basil vinaigrette:

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ packed cup basil leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt, as needed
  • Freshly ground black pepper, as needed

For assembly:

  • 3 ounces prosciutto
  • 5 ounces wild arugula
  • 2 medium yellow peaches, pitted and sliced
  • 1 medium heirloom tomato, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 medium Haas avocado, pitted, peeled and sliced
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella, torn into pieces
  • Basil leaves, for garnish


For the basil vinaigrette:

  • In a small bowl whisk together the olive oil, chopped basil, lemon juice, and garlic. Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside until ready to use.
  • The dressing can be made up to 2 days in advance and stored refrigerated in an airtight container until ready to use.

For assembly:

  • Heat oven to broil on high. Lay the slices of prosciutto out on a baking sheet in a single layer. Broil until the prosciutto is golden, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Flip the prosciutto with tongs and continue to broil until crispy, about an additional minute. Be sure to check on the prosciutto frequently so it does not burn.
  • Add the arugula to a large salad bowl or platter. Top with the slices of peaches, tomatoes, avocado and mozzarella.
  • Drizzle with the dressing and top with crispy prosciutto. Garnish with basil and serve.
