Ingredients

  • 4 ears corn
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 8 slices prosciutto cut into 1-inch squares
  • 8 cups arugula packed
  • 4 peaches ripe; sliced
  • 1/2 cup smoked gouda cut into cubes

White Wine Vinaigrette:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon dijon

Instructions

  • Cook corn in a pot of boiling water for 10 minutes, until cooked through. Remove from water and allow to cool for several minutes before slicing the kernels from the cob.
  • Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil, then the prosciutto squares, scattering them as best you can.
  • Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until prosciutto is crispy. Remove from pan and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  • Combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Shake together the vinaigrette and toss the salad.
  • Divide between 4 large bowl plates and serve immediately.

Notes

This recipe makes 4 large (meal sized) portions or 8 side salad portions. Top with grilled chicken and serve with a nice slice of bread for a complete meal.
 
Storage
Sadly, this salad doesn't keep very well, so it's best to serve immediately, or to dress immediately before serving.
