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.

This was nice, definitely a good taste combination. My avocado was a little too ripe/too soft for serving it in slices, so instead I cut it into wedges, and tore smaller pieces of prosciutto and mixed it together almost like a salad with the dressing. I really like it that way- it somewhat resembled an Italian twist on guacamole, and by mixing it with the dressing, the lemon coated the avocado and kept it from getting brown. I used top end prosciutto for this, and to be honest next time I might go down a bit to save money. I'm not sure the flavor of it came through enough to warrant spending so much (I'll save the high end stuff for eating by itself or with cheese). Thanks again for the creative recipe.

Now that's yummy! I had some prosciutto that I needed to use up and I came across this recipe. I went and bought avacadoes just for this! Salty proscuitto with creamy avacado... YUM! I skipped the garlic (mosty b/c I forgot) but it wasn't necessary. So good! I'll be making this again for sure. :)
