Cooking and Entertaining: Bobby Flay’s Peach and Arugula Salad with Crispy Pancetta and Gorgonzola

my version of Bobby Flay's Peach and Arugula Salas with Crispy Pancetta and Gorgonzola

Bobby Flay is an amazing chef-I’ve eaten at three of his restaurants (Mesa Grill, Bar Americain and Bobby’s Burger Palace) and the food is always outstanding! He truly has a gift for putting together the right ingredients in the right quantities. 

Though he’s best known for Southwestern and grill cooking, I’m a big fan of his show, Brunch at Bobby’s. After seeing the episode where he prepared this peach and arugula salad, I gave it a try. It’s light, fresh and beyond tasty.

the ingredients
I used a baguette in place of ciabatta, sliced pancetta since cubed wasn't
available, fig & almond cake instead of fig jam (to lower the sugar content)
and white donut peaches since I like them more than regular peaches

In addition to olive oil, Chex Flay always adds salt and pepper to crostini
