Mango and Prosciutto Salad
6 slices Italian Prosciutto grilled till crisp and then broken into pieces
2 fresh mango sliced into pieces or alternatively 6 fresh figs cut into quarters
Salad leaves of choice - Cos lettuce is divine with this.
2 Sliced vine tomato
2 fresh avocado sliced into pieces
2 bunches fresh asparagus - (break off woody ends, steam for 2 minutes in a dish of water in the microwave, drain off hot water and immediately rinse under cold water)
1 cucumber sliced thinly
Fresh grated Parmesan Cheese
Whole Egg Mayonnaise
Whole Grain Mustard
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Layer the leaves over your platter and then scatter the avocado, tomato, cucumber and fruit of choice over. Gently lay the asparagus in a criss/cross pattern over the salad then sprinkle the prosciutto and some finely chopped dill and the parmesan over.
Prepare your salad dressing by mixing: 1/4 cup of mayo with 2 tablespoons each of olive oil and lemon juice. Add one teaspoon of whole grain mustard and 1/2 a teaspoon of crushed garlic. Stir in a tablespoon of grated parmesan and whisk all together and serve in a cute little jug. Sprinkle over a little fresh dill.
