      This recipe definitely needs the saltiness to work. I tried to skip the ham, and it was ok, but not nearly as good as the version I made with the prosciutto.

      This is delicious! I served as a side dish with some tilapia filets. I went out to my garden to get mint, which I grow in 5-gallon buckets, and discovered the only ones that came back this year, after the hard winter, were chocolate and lemon--no spearmint. I used the lemon-mint and it was fantastic, especially with the fish. The mint complimented the saltiness of the prosciutto. Thanks for posting this keeper!
