Megans Cookin: My favorite Salad!

Monday, September 29, 2008

My favorite Salad!

When we had our wine pairing dinner last month, one of the dishes I wanted more of was the salad. Now, if you know me, that would surprise you. A six course meal and I want more salad? Yea, kind of blew me away too. But when I got home, that was the first dish I recreated. It wasn't hard since the title says it all.
Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Peaches with Baby Greens, Macadamia Nuts, Goat Cheese and Wild Flower Honey Vinaigrette

I didn't have any wild flower honey but I had my favorite honey straight from the farmers market. Raspberry Honey. And I found a recipe that not only compliments this salad but any salad. And it was quick, easy, and only has 1 teaspoon of oil. Pretty low fat, don't you think?

I wrapped the prosciutto around the peach slices and the first time we grilled them on the BBQ. The next time I grilled them on my grill pan. And the third time, yes, I've made this quite a few times. I used pears. Or you could use apple slices. I was thinking Autumn when I tried the pears. I thought they were all good so try your favorite fruit.

I grilled them with the toothpick in them but be sure to remove it before serving!

Grill them just till the prosciutto is crisp.

My goat cheese came from the farmers market too, and I got the one rolled in Herbs de Providence. But I've also used plain store bought goat cheese. Just use your favorite!

I've used baby spinich in place of the baby greens.
Mix it up!
Baby greens or spinich, peaches or pears,
herbed cheese or plain.
Make it your own, but do try it!
You'll be comming back for seconds!!!

Honey Vinaigrette:
recipe by Mccormick

2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon canola or vegetable oil
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

These look disgustingly healthy, and very very good.

No, I did not hear anything about the cookies. I would have liked to know they got there safe, or at least got there. Thanks for visiting my blog.
