Grilled Peach and Burrata Salad with Crispy Prosciutto

Mmmm, peach season! In Colorado, we are spoiled with Palisade Peaches. Large, extra juicy, and so sweet. This recipe is all about these gems. With the addition of creamy burrata, crispy and salty prosciutto, and drizzled with thyme honey. You can't go wrong. You hit all the flavors and textures with this one. A perfect meal or side dish for your summer grill out. 

Grilling the peaches brings out the natural sugar and makes for a super juicy bite. I try to find peaches that are almost ripe. When you gently squeeze it with your fingers, it should give a little but not puncture or bruise. Almost like a tennis ball. These will hold up best on the grill or grill pan. I use just a touch of oil on the grill or grill pan, slice the peaches and grill for about 5 minutes of each side or until there are visible grill marks. 

For the prosciutto, place your slices on a baking sheet and stick it under the broiler for 5-10 minutes. Watch closely because the broiler works quickly! The thyme honey is just thyme leaves in some honey, give it a stir and you're done. Doesn't sound like much, but truuuust me it's a delicious touch to the dish. 

To plate, add your grilled peaches, a couple pieces of opened burrata, scatter the crispy prosciutto around evenly and drizzle with your thyme honey. Add a little drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper to the burrata. Add some extra thyme for garnish. Fin.  

Alriiiight - here's the recipe. Happy grilling!
