Notes

This salad is a perfect compliment to a big pan of Spanish Paella and Sangria. It's simple to make and you can alter the ingredients based on whats in season, although peach and prosciutto are a wonderful pair together. The goat cheese is a staple but for those who don't like goat cheese, try feta, and Marcona almonds can be substituted for regular almonds or pecans.
