Grilled Peaches over Baby Greens with Parmesan and Prosciutto


I am ALWAYS behind in posts so bear with me but this recipe screams JANUARY! It's a clean meal with great flavors. The recipe for this calls for goat cheese which if you know me, I LOVE goat cheese. I discovered it a year ago after thinking it was gross. I had never even tasted it before but thought it was gross. I was sooo wrong. It is like cream cheese with a kick. And now I am in love. I have to have it in my house at all times along with feta and Parmesan. But when I made this recipe, I was out of goat cheese. I had gone on a binge eating it on a salad with freshly roasted beets the night before. I was out and had to find an alternative. So rough, right? Parm it was! But you will love this recipe with all the changes, I promise! I loved it so much, I made it twice in one week. That is saying something. A recipe is lucky to be made twice in one year around here.

Some of my best recipes come out of recipe books! Cooking Light has some of the best recipes


 Bring vinegar to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
 Reduce heat, and simmer until vinegar is reduced to 2 tablespoons (about 2 minutes).
 Remove from heat
stir in honey. Cool to room temperature
  Get your grill ready and hot. The Fireman just happens to be grilling chicken. Slice up peaches. I sprayed with cooking spray in the house on both sides afraid they would sick. If you are using a grill pan spray the spay on the grill pan.
 Prepare the greens. I put the amount that we were going to use in a bowl so I could dress the greens before putting them on the plate.

 Combine oil, pepper, and salt in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add baby greens , tossing gently to coat.
  Arrange baby greens mixture on a platter or bowls.
 Place peach wedges on grill rack coated; grill 30 seconds on each side or until grill marks appear but peaches are still firm. Remove from grill; set aside.
 Louie is not happy about us grilling.
 Lucy is
 They are getting so big so fast
 peaches are getting marks on one side. They look so good.
 I wish you could smell these
 Top with prosciutto.
and then cover the prosciutto with the  peach wedges and then drizzle with balsamic syrup; sprinkle with cheese.
 DINNER!!!
