Romaine Salad With Provolone and Prosciutto

Total Time

This is the best accompaniment to a heavy pasta meal. The only way I can describe the dressing is to say it tastes "bright and light". If there is any leftover after a meal is over, there isn't for long, because I always end up picking at it until it's gone!

Great salad! I didn't have lemon so used lime juice and zest instead. It was good but I will try lemon next time. I loved that the dressing is made right in the bowl - fresh every time and less clean up! Thanks for sharing!

My neighbor made Italian Wedding Soup last night, and I brought this salad to accompany it. The comments I heard were "different", "refreshing", "light", and I will add excellent! I had to omit the red onion because I did not have one on hand, and used fresh mozzarella instead of the provolone because I needed to use it. I also tossed in a few garlic croutons to add the crunch lost from omitting the onion. Overall, this was excellent and I will definitely be making it again! Thanks JackieOhNo for another great recipe!
