Warm Peach and Prosciutto Salad

I saw Michael Chiarello on Food Network make this salad and it just looked so scrumptious. If you can't find prosciutto substitute thin slices of smoked ham. I can't wait for peaches to come into season to try this delightful looking salad.

Very nice salad. I like the sweet taste of the peaches with the saltiness of the prosciutto. I think this will also be great with nectarines.
