    MarieRynr's Note:

    This first course requires no cooking and clearly demonstrates the stunning a few simple ingredients of the finest quality can have when thoughtfully combined. All the elements are intended to complement the unique flavours of a good ham and can be assembled in the last few minutes. It should look light and airy, as if the ingredients floated down from the sky onto the plate.

      MarieAlice - I hope that you will forgive me for subbing prosciutto for the was the only change I made...and prosciutto really is ham! This salad was yet another winner....simple but beautiful. I lightly fried the prosciutto and then followed the recipe. Couldn't be simpler and was very much enjoyed. Thanks again.
