Serves: 4
Cook time: 15 minutes (for the prosciutto)

Ingredients:

  • 6 slices prosciutto (about 3 ounces)
  • 3 heirloom tomatoes
  • 3 nectarines
  • 4 sprigs tarragon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

Directions:

1. Make crispy prosciutto: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Arrange prosciutto slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until the color darkens to a deep pink, 15 minutes. Using tongs, carefully transfer prosciutto to paper towels to drain and cool, about 5 minutes. Using your hands, crumble the prosciutto into a bowl. This recipe makes about 1/2 cup of crispy prosciutto.

2. Slice the tomatoes and nectarines into large bite-size chunks. Tear the tarragon leaves. (None of this needs to be perfect. In fact, imperfection is better because it makes the finished dish look more rustic.)

3. In a large bowl, gently toss together the tomatoes, nectarines and tarragon. Drizzle on olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle crispy prosciutto on top. Serve.
