I tried this last night and will make this for a dinner party. I made two small variations. First, I set aside some of the balsamic reduction to drizzle on top, and mixed the remaining with a little lemon juice for a lighter salad dressing. Secondly, I wrapped the peach slices in the prosciutto and then grilled them. (I do this with figs, too). That worked out well and makes a nice presentation.

I am only going to add to the accolades everyone else gave this recipe. I made it for a dinner party with a marinated boneless pork loin. I used a peach balsamic vinegar and only 1T of honey. I personally don't think any honey is needed. I used an argula/spinach blend. I grilled the peaches in advance. Easy to make, delicious and not requiring odd ingredients...what more can you ask for?!

I was looking for something different to do with fresh peaches and came across this recipe. It is one of the best and easiest salads I've ever made. Took an earlier suggestion to serve with fish...used Mahi Mahi. Can't wait to make this salad again for friends this weekend!!

Easy to make. Light. Amazing flavor combination. I strongly recommend it.

This is by far the best salad I've ever made. I used raspberry balsamic for a fruitier flavor and Morningstar soy bacon for a vegetarian salad. What a wonderful combination of flavors and a great way to use fresh arugula from the garden!

This was an excellent summer salad! The goat cheese with the grilled peaches created a rich and wonderful taste. I did not have arugula on hand or proscuitto so instead I paired it with hearts of romaine and grilled chicken. I will definitely be making this salad over and over again! Also, if you don't have time to make the balsamic glaze, just use a light balsamic viniagrette. My mom and I were wanting a little crunch to our salad as well, so we added pita chips. There are endless possibilities with this salad so you can make it over and over again and it will always be a little different.

This was good but the syrup was too sweet for me. Next time i will only use a drop of honey, if any at all.

Great salad! Very easy to make - it took me 20 minutes. I didn't (and won't) change a thing. My husband and I ate the whole thing as a main course!

Excellent recipe. I was looking for a non-dessert, non-fattening peach recipe and this one was a winner.
