Mike and I snuck down to Sanibel Island for a few days. We crunched our toes in the sand, played in the gulf, collected shells and even caught a couple of sunrises. It had been a long time since I got up for a sunrise, but I’m so glad I did it. It was so peaceful and the energy of a new day was everywhere. I had time to research recipes and came across this Peach Chutney Pizza with Prosciutto and Goat Cheese.
The balance between the sweet peaches and the salty prosciutto is so delicious. I’m really becoming a big fan of salty-sweet flavor combinations.
What are some of your favorite flavor combinations?
