Arugula Pancetta and Peach Salad with Mint Dijon Vinaigrette

Along with my other favorite summer salad, Honeydew melon, cucumber and mint with feta, Arugula Pancetta and Peach Salad with Mint Dijon Vinaigrette makes summer complete! Kids love the mix and don't be surprised if your cooling Pancetta reduces to half with little fingers walking by. This incredibly quick and delicious salad can be enjoyed as a main course with some cold or hot soup and crusty bread if you like. Or pair it with seasoned grilled salmon like I did and you have a great dinner menu for guests. Play around with your vinaigrette ingredients or stick to the mint, Dijon and white vinegar recipe below. With the sweet and ripe peaches and the creamy pancetta, you hardly need a dressing at all. Most of all, enjoy!
