Melon and Crispy Prosciutto Salad

Melon and Crispy Prosciutto Salad

I love this salad. It is a bit different than many with the salty prosciutto standing in  for the North American bacon fix.  The dressing is also flavourful. I use the dressing on all kinds of green salads. I served this salad with Veal Shells  with Marsala and Vermouth for an Italian themed lunch.  See the wine pairing notes for this meal as well.

Instructions
  1. Put almonds in a resealable bag and roughly crush with a rolling pin. Spread almond pieces on a pie plate and roast in 375 degree oven approx 12 minutes. Check often since nuts can burn quickly.
  2. On a microwaveable plate, spread prosciutto in a single layer. Microwave on high approx 4 minutes. Check after 2 minutes since ovens can vary widely. Allow to cool and crumble into fine bits.
  3. Mix melons and lettuce in large bowl.
  4. Mix dressing ingredients. Just before serving add almonds to the salad and toss with the dressing.
  5. Top with prosciutto bits and serve.
