Sometimes a girl just needs some bacon and there is no way around it! This salad was the perfect vessel for my bacon craving and a great use of those ripe summer peaches that are everywhere I look right now! I am all about eating healthy, but I’m also a true believer in not denying yourself anything you truly want, in moderation, of course. A little bacon goes a long way on this vibrant summer salad. The saltiness of the bacon, the sweetness of the peaches, and the bitterness of the arugula…simply perfection.
Salt and Pepper
Put a handful of arugula on a plate, layer with sliced peaches, fried bacon torn to bite-sized pieces (one or two slices of bacon is all you need!), sprinkle with grated Pecorino Romano cheese and drizzle with olive, lemon juice, and a generous pinch of salt and pepper, and voila! The perfect combination of flavors and a surprisingly light and satisfying summer meal. Enjoy!
