Little Gem Salad with Prosciutto

By Pete Evans From Moveable Feast Season 4, Ep.9
Featured in our 2020 Easter Guide

Servings: 6 to 8

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

  • 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

    LOVE this salad. Agree with the rave about the dressing; I prefer it without the honey but either way, it's outstanding. It presents beautifully as a first course to company and for something with so much flavor and wow factor, it's a snap to make. You basically just assemble it. It also makes a nice light lunch on its own.
