Peach Prosciutto Skewers

These easy peach and prosciutto skewers blend a classic combo of flavors with creamy Mozzarella cheese, salty prosciutto and juicy sweet peaches or nectarines. They’re topped with a drizzle of Honey Basil Vinaigrette for an explosion of perfect flavors! When stone fruit is in prime season, you can’t beat this perfect bite!

Ingredients and Equipment Notes

  • Mozzarella – you’ll want to buy the mini, fresh Mozzarella balls for this recipe. You could cube Mozzarella from a larger piece, but these little balls are the perfect size. You will find them in plastic containers packed in liquid.
  • Prosciutto – prosciutto is a dry-cured ham that’s incredibly thin. You’ll find it in the deli section of the grocery store, unrefrigerated.
  • Peaches or Nectarines– You’ll want ripe, but not mushy fruit. I actually prefer nectarines to peaches because you can leave the skins on, making the process really simple. I cut straight down the side of the fruit, around the pit, and then slice into small chunks about the size of the cheese.
  • Fresh Basil – fresh basil leaves look really pretty on the skewers, and taste great too, but if you don’t like the textural element of the whole leaf, you can totally skip it. You get tons of great basil flavor from the vinaigrette.

Instructions

These simple skewers are so simple to put together and pack SO much flavor!

  1. Make Honey Basil Vinaigrette and set aside at room temperature.
  2. Slice strips of prosciutto into smaller pieces, about 1-2″ x 2-3.”
  3. Layer a piece of cheese with a folded slice of prosciutto and then a piece of fruit onto a skewer. (I’m using this style of skewer.) Include fresh basil leaf if desired.
  4. Place all skewers on a plate and drizzle with vinaigrette and serve immediately.

Serving Suggestions

These little peach prosciutto skewers make a great snack or appetizer, but you could also serve them at meal time alongside your favorite salad, or some grilled chicken or steak. You could also make a larger “salad” version of this flavor combination by skipping the skewers and layering slices of fresh mozzarella, peaches, and larger pieces of prosciutto and basil on a plate (think Caprese salad style).

Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

Skewers

  • small balls of Fresh Mozzarella I buy the 12oz tub, not marinated
  • 1 3-5oz package prosciutto
  • 4-5 ripe nectarines or peaches I always get extra in case you mangle them while trying to slice
  • 1 bunch basil leave optional

Honey Basil Vinaigrette

  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar I recommend Bragg’s brand
  • 1 clove garlic or 2 smaller, about 1 teaspoon finely minced or pressed
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 oz fresh basil leaves about 2 cups lightly packed
  • 1 cup olive oil or other oil of your choice

Instructions

  •  
  • To make vinaigrette, place vinegar, garlic, salt, and honey in a blender and blend until well combined.  Honey has a tendency to sink and stick to the bottom of the blender, so scrape with a spatula if needed. Add basil and process until smooth and bright green. With blender running on low speed, slowly drizzle in oil in a steady stream until emulsified. Set aside at room temp.
  • Slice each strip of prosciutto into smaller pieces, about 1-2" x 2-3."
  • Slice fruit into pieces about the size of your cheese. If using nectarines, just leave the skin on.
  • Layer a piece of cheese with a folded slice of prosciutto and then a piece of fruit onto skewers. Include fresh basil leaf if desired.
  • Place all skewers on a plate and drizzle with vinaigrette and serve immediately.
