Peaches are in season at the Farmer's Market and they are amazing! Here's a great peach and arugula salad that will turn your bacon lover into a salad eater!
1 Tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
3 firm ripe peaches
18 thin slices of pancetta
2 Tablespoons of olive oil
10 ounces of Baby Arugula
2 ounces of crumbled Feta Cheese
Whisk vinegar, lemon juice and salt and add olive oil in a stream and continue whisking until emulsified.
Taking the skin off the peaches is super easy and kids love to do it! Boil some water and mark an X on the bottom of the peach with a knife.
Drop in the boiling water for only 15 seconds and then transfer to a bowl of ice water.
Peel the peaches and cut into 6 sections each.
Wrap the peaches with pancetta.
Heat a skillet with 2 tablespoons of olive oil on moderate heat, then cook the peaches (in 2 batches if necessary)
Turn them over occasionally until pancetta is browned on all sides.
Divide arugula and peaches among 6 plates, drizzle with dressing, sprinkle with feta cheese, a pinch of freshly ground pepper and serve!
