Great change from the ordinary! I made it without the prosciutto (didn't have any on hand) but it was delicious none the less. The warm dressing is just perfect, we loved the toasty pine nuts. Will make this again and with the prosciutto next time! Thanks s'kat!

Loved this thanks. I had a red capsicum needing using so popped that in and after a taste, I added a splash of white wine vinegar.
