Serves 6 to 8

  • by from Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking
    Season 4, Ep. 9

If Little Gem lettuce is unavailable, bright green, crisp hearts of romaine or baby romaine are a fine substitution.

  • 2 anchovies, finely chopped
  • 1 small clove garlic, grated
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 Tbs. whole-grain mustard
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced fresh chives
  • 4 heads Little Gem lettuce, trimmed and quartered
  • 3 oz. thinly sliced Prosciutto di Parma, cut in half lengthwise

In a small bowl, whisk the anchovies, garlic, lemon zest and juice, mustard, honey, 3/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Drizzle in the oil, whisking until emulsified. Gently stir in the chives.

Arrange the lettuce on a platter, drizzle with most of the vinaigrette, top with the prosciutto, drizzle with the remaining vinaigrette, and serve.
