Tips and Notes to make the peach salad:

  • This recipe is from Chef Michael Chiarello, Casual Cooking, 2002.
  • Use fresh and unripe peaches.
  • An aged balsamic vinegar is preferable.
  • Make sure you use unsalted butter. Less sodium, the better.
  • Substitute arugula for mixed greens salad.
  • No prosciuto, don’t worry, the Italian version of mortadella goes very well with the peaches.
