My favorite part was the little mozzarella balls together with the peaches and tomatoes. It's a delicious salad, but as a word of warning, the prosciutto only kept well in the fridge with the rest of the dressed salad for about two days. If you aren't planning to eat it quickly, you may want to add the prosciutto as you eat it.
