The perfect Valentine’s Day salad, this dish comes together in minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
  • Pinch of granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 cups baby arugula, spinach, or mesclun mix
  • 2 thin slices prosciutto, cut crosswise into thin ribbons
  • 1 small firm-ripe Forelle pear, cored and cut into thin wedges
  • 1/2 small ripe avocado, pitted and cut into small cubes

Preparation

  • In a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice, zest, and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Slowly whisk in the oil. Season the vinaigrette to taste with salt and pepper.

    Simple and delicious! Crunchy, juicy pears and unctuous, rich avocado, then the light, lemony dressing-- yum!
