Tomato & Fresh Green Bean Salad with Crisp Prosciutto

Scott Phillips

    Simple and delicious. Didn't have any savory so used thyme instead.Update: since Oregano is at its height in the garden, used oregano blossoms in the dressing this time and garnished with flowering sprigs. Served on top of spring mix/spinach tossed in same dressing. The blooms gave the dressing a purplish hue. It was great!
