Heat the oven to 400°F. In a medium bowl combine 6 Tbs. of the oil, the manchego, and paprika. Toss the bread cubes with the flavored oil. Arrange the bread on a baking sheet and bake in the center of the oven until crisp and golden-brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Cool completely.
In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, mustard, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a few grinds of pepper. Gradually whisk in the remaining 3 Tbs. of oil.
In a large bowl, toss the greens with enough vinaigrette to lightly coat. Add the olives and croutons and toss. Divide the salad among the serving plates, top each with 3 torn slices of ham, and serve.
