Apple Salad with Prosciutto

Apple Salad with Crispy Prosciutto and Greens

Apple Salad with Crispy Prosciutto and Greens
3 oz. good quality prosciutto, thinly sliced
2 small apples, any variety (I used early Macs because they’re in season here)
2 cups mixed greens
2 tsp. pure maple syrup
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper

In a dry nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, saute the prosciutto until it becomes crispy and curls around the edges, about 3-5 minutes.  Set aside.  Toss the apples and greens in a medium-sized bowl.  In a small bowl, whisk together the syrup, vinegar, and oil, and drizzle over the the apples and greens (remember; you can always add more dressing, but you can’t take it out, so start slowly).  Toss to coat, taste, and adjust the seasonings.  Add the prosciutto and toss gently until everything is combined.
