    Adapted from BHG "Holiday Appetizers" magazine. The dressing can be made ahead and kept in the fridge, but don't prepare the avocados until just before serving or they will turn brown.

    Remaining Ingredients


    1. 1
      Combine oil,lemon juice,garlic, oregano, and pepper in a container with a tight lid (such as a jar) and set aside.

      Cut avocados into halves, remove pit, and peel each half carefully.
    3. 3
      Slice each avocado half into 4 wedges and wrap a proscuitto strip around each in the center.

    6. 6
      Serve immediately as avocados brown quickly once cut.

      To combine prosciutto with avocado never occurred to me but when I saw this recipe it appealed to me right away. And we were not disappointed! I also did not add salt and made the dressing as written, worth a repeat...thank you!

      Loved this recipe it is so easy yet great for a dinner party. The sauce is lovely as it is no alteration needed. I did not add any salt as the prosciutto I had was salty enough. I used it as 4 servings as a starter.

      It was good and easy. The creaminess of the avocado really shines. I subbed fresh basil for oregano. My procuitto was very big, I cut into thirds (lengthwise), it was perfect to wrap each piece of avocado in and makes for a reasonable bite size. Thank you.
