Bobby Flay's Kentucky Ham Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Lorraine of AZ

This salad was created by Bobby Flay who sees it as a fall salad. I think it would be terrific as a summer salad, too though you may have to substitute for the fresh figs. The combination of ingredients look outstanding and somewhat Mediterranean. Recipe appeared in People magazine.

Absolutely delicious salad with arugula, ham, figs, pecans, ricotta and molasses Dijon dressing, which is spot on!
