      Great salad! My favorite part is the perfectly flavored dressing. No, I thoroughly enjoyed the sweet smoothness of the pears with the crunch of the lettuce. Oh, but those wonderful little morsels of crusty, seasoned goat cheese! The ham and the toasted walnuts-so addictive. I loved EVERY part of this beautifully presented salad and highly recommend it. Only change I made was to saute the goat cheese in olive oil rather than butter.

      Wonderful!!! We just got back from a trip to Hawaii and had a salad just like this - I was excited to find this recipe and it was just as good as what we had. No butter lettuce, so I used a fancy Spring mix and topped it with pine nuts. This will be made often!! (Note - at the restaurant they cut the proscuitto in thin strips and rolled them and set them on the plates upright. It looked nice.)

      OMG, Di - this is absolutely fabulous! We love prosciutto with melon as an appetizer and this is even better. What a great salad to serve to guests - it looks very gourmet and the combination of the fried goat cheese,ripe pear and prosciutto is sublime.
