Prosciutto-Wrapped Greens
Serves 8
(Recipe from fine cooking)
3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp. red wine vinegar
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 lb. mesclun or arugula, washed and spun dry
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2Tbs. freshly grated ground black pepper
2 Tbs. freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
12 thin slices proscuitto
In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, and mustard. Put the mesclun or argula in a medium bowl and season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper. add the Parmigiano to the greens and gently toss with just enough of the vinaigrette to coat the greens lightly. Taste for salt and pepper.
Set a slice of prosciuttoΒ on a work surface and put a small handful of greens at the narrow end of the meat. Squeeze the greens together and roll the proscuitto into a tight log. Cut the log into 2-inch pieces on the diagonal (two or three pieces, depending on the width of the proscuitto). Repeat with the remaining proscuitto and greens and serve.
