I'm not sure if I've confessed this or not here on Boxwood, but I hate salads. Yep, it basically sucks. I'd love to eat healthy every day, by choosing fresh salads for lunch and dinner, but that just isn't
Earlier this month, I finally got to meet face-to-face with my wedding planner, Jamie, from A Savvy Event. Let me tell
In an attempt to make a 'healthy' choice, I ordered the grilled peach salad, and I'm not sure if it was the champagne talking, but I loved it. So, I suppose warm salads are my new favorite. It was so good, that I wanted to recreate a version of it at home, and dang, it is yummy!
Warm Pear Salad with Crispy Prosciutto and Burrata
- Burrata (or fresh mozzarella)
- 1 ripe pear
- 1 tablespoon warm honey
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil (or oil of choice)
- Fresh Greens
Step 1: In a small mason jar, combine oil, vinegar, and honey. Cover, and shake very well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Step 2: In a frying pan, crisp prosciutto the same way you would cook bacon. Be careful that it doesn't burn!! Nothing tastes worse than burnt prosciutto. Add a little olive oil if needed.
Step 3: Once prosciutto is crisp, remove from the frying pan, and set aside. Slice your pear in 1/4" sections and place directly into the same frying pan you used for the prosciutto. Turn the heat to low and let the pear warm up / soak up some of the prosciutto grease.
Step 4: Toss your lettuce with the dressing you prepared in step one. Layer the greens on a salad plate. Top with prosciutto, pears, and torn burrata bits. Add salt and pepper to taste.
