Peach, Prosciutto, and Burrata Salad
- 1 package/bunch arugula
- 3-4 slices prosciutto, torn into bite-sized pieces

Thoroughly wash the arugula and place in a clean tea towel to dry completely. Set to the side. Slice peaches in rounds and tear prosciutto into bite sized pieces. In a small food processor or blender, place torn basil, apple cider vinegar, and raw honey. Drizzle in olive oil to emulsify into a delicious vinegar. Taste for sweetness. Add salt and pepper to taste. To assemble the salad place arugula in a bowl. Add prosciutto and peaches to the top. Finish with a pulled piece of burrata. Drizzle vinaigrette on top. Finish with a sprig of basil. Enjoy this amazing salad as we say farewell to the last days of summer!
