This recipe is from the "First for Women" magazine. I sometimes subsitute pepperoni for the prosciutto and sometimes add mozzarella in order to make this more substantial - it ends up being my main course. :)

This is really nice! We've made this twice, the first time following the recipe and the second time taking some liberties. We didn't use the dressing called for here and used our own balsamic vinaigrette. We also substituted sopressata for the prosciutto and red onions for the scallions. Both times we added some fresh mozzarella balls. It was wonderful, Chicagopm. We'll use this often!
