The June gloom has finally subsided in Santa Barbara and it actually feels like summer! This has me excited for so many reasons, not least of which is the fact that I want to eat ALL the meals outside. Al fresco dining is pretty much my all-time fave.
It doesn’t hurt that we have our own little ocean view from the patio table, and that we can eat dinner outside when it’s still light out, languishing over the scenery and the beautiful, colorful food on our plates. I find it so refreshing and rejuvenating, especially on a weeknight after a busy day. It’s such a bougie way to unwind, no?
But that doesn’t mean I necessarily want to slave away in the kitchen to get that leisurely meal on the table. Even me, a professional chef, needs a little dinner shortcut sometimes…actually, I need them way more than you’d think. Usually the last thing I want to do is cook a meal for myself after I’ve been cooking all day for my clients. And that’s when it’s frozen pizza to the rescue.
But not just any frozen pizza will do. Us foodies still have standards to uphold, and that’s why I’m partnering with Freschetta today. Their pizzas are preservative free, use 100% real mozzarella and provolone cheese and have a naturally rising crust, so when I want a quick meal that I don’t prepare myself, I want something I can feel good about serving.
Freschetta asked me to create a side dish to pair with their pizzas, and I couldn’t think of a more perfect match than this Prosciutto Peach Arugula Salad. The peppery green arugula and juicy summer peaches are an ideal pairing for any of their pizzas. And I added thin ribbons of prosciutto and creamy burrata into the mix because hello- why the heck not?!
The best part about this Prosciutto Peach Arugula salad (besides it’s seasonal perfection and authentically Italian fabulousness) is that it comes together quicker than the time it takes for your pizza to bake in the oven. Just arrange all your ingredients on a platter and drizzle it with a couple glugs of olive oil, a few swishes of balsamic glaze and a sprinkle of flaky sea salt and presto! You have yourself a wonderfully well-rounded meal in mere minutes that is best suited for al fresco enjoyment.
