PEAR PROSCIUTTO SALAD

If you follow me on Instagram, you might’ve noticed my latest obsession with fridge dump salads. It’s pretty simple. I open my refrigerator and basically dump any and all ingredients into a bowl over lettuce. I’d like to say it’s completely random, but maybe I just have an adventurous palate. I like lentils with dates and sauerkraut with grapes… it’s an ideal way to add spontaneity to your meal when you’re inching towards an empty kitchen.

This week I had some prosciutto laying around from a charcuterie board and decided to pair it with some seasonal fruit. Pears and raspberries add a sweetness to salty prosciutto! I tossed in pistachios for an extra crunch and moved on to creating the perfect dressing for drizzling this pear prosciutto salad.

A sesame mustard dressing goes perfectly with any salad combination. I loved adding whole sesame seeds to this light dressing, adding even more texture to my pear prosciutto salad! I used a combination of white and black sesame seeds, but either will do.
