Ingredients
  • 2 oz pancetta, sliced thin (bacon or prosciutto can be substituted)
  • 2 peaches, halved and pitted
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 Tbsp light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 5 oz mesclun salad greens
  • 2 Tbsp chives, minced
Honey Vinaigrette
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lay the pancetta slices on a baking sheet lined with a sheet of parchment paper and cook (flipping once) for about 10 minutes or until browned and crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate and drain.

  2. Preheat a grill to medium/high heat and rub the peach halves with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill the peaches, cut side down for 3-4 minutes or until you have nice grill marks and then carefully turn them over.
  4. Mix together the brown sugar and vinegar and place a small spoonful on top of each peach halve as it grills. Cover and continue to grill an additional 4 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat, top with blue cheese and drizzle with honey.
  6. Toss the greens with vinaigrette to taste and arrange peaches and pancetta slices over the top.
  7. Sprinkle with chives and additional vinaigrette if desired to serve.

Honey Vinaigrette
  1. Whisk the honey, mustard, and vinegar together. Whisk in the olive oil in a slow, steady stream until emulsified. Season with salt and pepper.

Recipe Notes
  • Always use ripe peaches for the best flavor.
  • The honey vinaigrette can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. Bring to to room temperature to serve.
  • Not a fan of blue cheese? Try goat cheese or feta instead.
  • If you can't find pancetta, regular bacon or prosciutto can be substituted.
