Your guests will be amazed to find out how tasty these simple snacks are. Peaches or plums also work well in place of the nectarines. You can assemble the bundles up to an hour in advance. Just cover them with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
4 cups lightly packed trimmed arugula
1 teaspoon extravirgin olive oil
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
12 (1/2-ounce) slices prosciutto, each cut in half lengthwise
3 nectarines, each cut into 8 wedges (about 3/4 pound)
How to Make It
Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; toss gently to combine. Arrange 3 or 4 arugula leaves at 1 end of 1 prosciutto strip. Place 1 nectarine wedge on top of arugula; roll up. Place bundle, seam side down, on a serving plate. Repeat procedure with remaining arugula, prosciutto, and nectarines.

I altered the recipe quite a bit. I only had ham and white nectarines as substitutes, but the since I had arugula, the basic idea of the recipe was intact. Even with the change in taste, my family still loved them. Will make again, even with the wrong ingredients on hand.
