Crisp prosciutto fig salad with mozarella

My hungry husband is going thru a prosciutto phase. So I wanted to create a new setting for his favorite snack. This is the result. A green salad with crisp prosciutto, smooth mozarella, fresh figs and crunchy croutons drizzled with a maple balsamico dressing. While we enjoyed the salad for dinner, it occured to me that it would also make a great sandwich or pizza…soon to come!

  • 1 large or 2 small heads of romaine lettuce
  • 6-8 slices of prosciutto
  • 1 cup / 240 ml mozarella pieces
  • 4-5 fresh figs
  • 2 cups / 5 dl croutons
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F/190C and bake the prosciutto for 5-7 min, then drain on paper towel.
  2. Cut the romaine lettuce, the mozarella and the figs.
  3. Arrange all the ingredients in a big bowl and prepare the dressing below.
